Teachers have the very important responsibility of shaping the lives of young, impressionable children. With this responsibility comes great pride and joy. Therefore all teachers should strive for what can be considered to be a “good teacher.”
A good teacher can be defined as someone who always pushes students to want to do their best while at the same time trying to make learning interesting as well as creative. A positive or negative influence from a teacher early on in life can have a great effect on the life of a child.
Teachers, especially at the elementary level, must be very creative with their teaching styles. Not every child learns the same way, nor are they interested in the same things. It is difficult to keep the attention of 15-20 children under the age of ten. Classroom setup and design is a good way to get and keep the attention of students.
Workstations are a good way to encourage different types of learning. By allowing children a chance to choose which activities they want to participate in, children are taking control of their own education. At the elementary level, children are always learning and sometimes don’t even know it. When I was in kindergarten, I can remember playing at the different stations in the classroom.
One station was for gardening and we could plant seeds and check them every day to see how much they had grown. Another station in that classroom that sticks out in my mind is the arts and crafts station. There was a large array of crayons, markers, scissors, construction paper and building materials we could use to make pretty decorations to give to our parents for our homes.
Radhakrishnan has made a huge contribution to India’s education sector. He believed that ‘a teacher’s brain is the best brain in the country’. Once some of Dr. Radhakrishnan’s students and friends told him that he wanted to celebrate his birthday.
In response to this, Dr. Radha Krishnan said that instead of celebrating my birthday separately, I would feel proud if it would be celebrated as Teacher’s Day. After this, Teachers’ Day was celebrated on 5 September in India. On this day we remember this great educationist and say a respectful thanks to all our teachers who have lit the lamp of knowledge in our lives. A teacher is a person who explains not only education but also the difference between understanding and right and wrong of the world.
Importance of Teacher’s Day
This day is very important for our society. On this day, we honor our teachers and boost their morale and appreciate their work. Children are the future of society and a teacher plays an important role in making those children a good person.
Without a teacher, no accountant, doctor, pilot, engineer or in any field can go. Teacher’s Day is also needed because children and their parents are able to understand the importance of a teacher in society, and they should understand that without education they cannot be identified. Also, only a teacher can give real knowledge of education.

Teachers are the part of this society, because of which this society is created. To make a child better and socially, a teacher does this and the teacher needs to understand this basic duty and his teacher’s day is needed to boost his morale towards his work. Dr. Radhakrishnan knew the importance of the teacher very well because he had an understanding of education and its importance.
Dr. Radha Krishnan’s birthday is celebrated not only as his birthday but also for respect for teachers and for awakening the consciousness of education in society and people.
