Teachers' Day

Most schools, including mine, will celebrate Teachers' Day on the last day of term.

Wishing all teachers a happy Teachers' Day!

A Teachers' Prayer

I want to teach my students how --
To live this life on earth
To face its struggles and strife
And to improve their worth

Not just the lesson in a book.
Or how the rivers flow,
But to choose the proper path,
Wherever they may go

To understand eternal truth,
And to know right from wrong,
And gather all the beauty of
A flower and a song,

For if I help the world to grow
In wisdom and grace,
Then I feel that I have won
And I have filled my place.

And so I ask your guidance, God
That I may do my part,
For character and confidence
And happiness of heart

  • My English teacher of my fourth and fifth form is someone who -

    sees beyond what the rest see
    teaches beyond what he is required to,
    inspires students to follow their dreams
    helps students to dream...

    I salute all teachers!

    Happy Teachers' Day.

  • Happy Teacher's Day, my son made an origami box for each of his teacher with a special poem in it that he wrote himself. I wanted to buy his teacher's gifts but he said he wanted to do something more from the heart.

  • Hope you had a wonderful teachers day. Teachers are so important to the future. And so often under appreciated.

  • Happy Teacher's Day! ('Belated' sounds lame, ROFL)

    Ah, it is a great responsibity to be a teacher and can be very stressful. But i think students also are very stressed out these days.
