Teaching is one of the most empowering profession in the world. Behind every successful person, whether it is a doctor, engineer, lawyer, artist, baker, or any other profession there is a teacher.
Teacher’s Day is celebrated all over India on the 5th of September, as it marks the birthday of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan who was an Indian academic, professor, philosopher, and politician who served as the first Vice President of India and the second President of India. Teacher’s Day has been celebrated in India since 1962.

The history to why the day is celebrated as teacher’s day is very important and we should mention it to our children to make them understand and realize how important a teacher is. We should help them acknowledge that they should respect their teachers, and learn from them as much as they can.
Teacher’s day is not marked as a holiday in India but is celebrated by organizing different activities by the children for their teachers and having a fun time at school, which is also an essential part of the development of a child. In some schools, the senior most class of the school take the role of the teachers on that day and teach the junior classes.
