Teacher’s Day Speech

A true teacher is not someone who just teaches academic lessons to their students. The teacher gives the right advice and also guide them. A teacher helps the students in each and every sphere of life. They are future makers. In this world, none of the achievers has attained a feat without the guidance of a teacher. Teacher’s Day look for to acknowledge this very contribution of teachers.

The Indian President A.P.J. ABDUL KALAM address on the eve of Teachers’ Day in India, 2003.

Dear listeners of All India Radio and Teachers, my greetings to all of you.

I am talking to you on the special occasion of Teachers’ Day. On this day, we gratefully remember the great educationist Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, whose dream was that "Teachers should be the best minds in the country". Hence, Teachers’ Day is very important for all our people, for our students and even for all the parents, as the teachers lay the foundation for creating enlightened citizens for the nation. On this day, I would like to recall three teachers who helped me in shaping my life.

To begin with I am going to talk to you about my father Janab Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen, as a teacher. My father taught me a great lesson when I was a young boy. What was that lesson? It was just after India got Independence. At that time Panchayat board elections took place at Rameswaram. My father was elected Panchayat Board member and on the same day he was also elected the president of the Rameswaram Panchayat Board. Rameswaram Island was a beautiful place with 30,000 populations at that time. Read more…..

Teacher’s Day Speech for school/college students

1. On need not necessarily give a formal speech, he be a student or a teacher, unless there’s mutual love, respect and affection between the two…; if he is student, his genuine love and respect towards his teachers and elders who have guided him along the path of life giving him necessary knowledge, teaching him discipline and other moral values, is enough…..and if he is a teacher, his love, care and affection for his taught and his untiring efforts to give them whatever they require in life is sufficient……;

i don’t believe in formal, ready-made or crammed speeches to be given on such occasions…and if at all there’s a speech, the words of the speech should be executed and expressed in actions……invariably…….

2. Teacher’s Day speech should highlight the fact that TEACHERS are equally important as Father & Mother.

We read many reports that parents challenge the behavior of Teachers and do not want Teachers to beat the children.
But Teachers know what is best for the children. Don’t Teach the Teacher.
In olden days, once the child was 5 years plus, the child would stay in a gurukul and was taught all necessary subjects, including behavior, compassion, housekeeping, etc.
Now a day, parents are overprotective of their children and the smart children misuse the love and get away. The ultimate loss however is of the child first and the Teacher second.

Thank you O TEACHERS OF INDIA FOR HAVING GIVEN US TRUE VISIONARIES AND NOTARIES – like Aryabhatta , Chanakya , Netaji Subash Bose , Mahatma Gandhi, etc.
