If you are reading this right now then chances are you have passed through the four walls of a classroom. What this means is that you have been taught by a teacher before. Of course a lot of people talk about how they do not like one particular teacher or the other, and for various reasons ranging from being too strict to being too boring etc.
But no matter how strict your teachers were with you, there would still be some you like so much and would be forever thankful to. In the same vein, even those teachers that you think you did not like then, looking back now, there would be some of them you cannot but be thankful to.
Those who have school students around them or who have kids at home would have noticed already that they are not going to school today. This is part of their own little efforts to appreciate their teachers – even as they would always be too willing to show that kind of appreciation!
So, as we celebrate teachers today, try to think of at least a teacher in your life to which you will be ever grateful, or whom you just love so much, for reasons best known to you. Appreciate the teacher by mentioning their name and the school. And, finally, do you still believe teaching is a noble profession? Can you be a teacher?
