Teachers from our past
Teachers are a friend, philosopher, and guide to children and have a great influence on young minds. Teachers are the backbone of the nation! Since time immemorial India has paid high regard to teachers and has considered them Gods. Who hasn’t heard of “Acharya Devo Bhava!”. We have had many great teachers in Indian Mythology like Shankaracharya, Dronacharya, and many others. Indian history also talks about great teachers likeDr.Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, Rabindranath Tagore, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, Swami Vivekananda, Chanakya and many others who shaped their students’ lives.
Teachers! Hats off to you!!
A great teacher can change a student’s life. There are many stories that clearly illustrate the benefits of a strong relationship between an educator and pupil. As some of the most influential role models for developing students, teachers are responsible for more than just academic enrichment. A great educator must connect with her/ his pupils and reach them on multiple levels because the best teachers are committed to their students’ well-being both inside and outside the classroom.
By forging strong relationships, educators are able to affect virtually every facet of their students’ lives, teaching them the important life lessons that will help them succeed beyond term papers and standardized tests!
