Teaching is the most influential job in the world. Teachers are known to shape the mind of youth and without knowledge no one can exist in this world. Teacher imparts good value in children and turn them into responsible citizens. So, almost every country celebrates Teacher's Day. Let's dive into the history of this celebration.

Many Countries Many Celebrations

In India, we celebrate this day on the birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. He was a man of many good qualities and a favorite teacher among students. It was his request that his birthday should be celebrated as an honorable day for all the teachers in the country, in case someone is wishing to celebrate his birthday at all. So, in a nutshell, we celebrate Teacher's Day because teachers have been the architect of the society and without them no society can walk in the path of progression.

Teachers' Day is a special day for the appreciation of teachers, and may include celebrations to honor them for their special contributions in a particular field area, or the community in general. Here we are discussing some intersting facts about teachers that many people don't know about.

Why's & How's of Teachers Day Celebrations

The idea of celebrating Teachers' Day took root in many countries during the 19th century; in most cases, they celebrate a local educator or an important milestone in education (for example, Argentina has commemorated Domingo Faustino Sarmiento's death on 11 September) since 1915. While India traditionally celebrates Guru Purnima, an Indian and Nepalese festival dedicated to spiritual and academic teachers which is celebrated on the full moon day (Purnima) in the Hindu month of Ashadha(June–July) as it is known in the Hindu calendar of India and Nepal. The birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan (5 September) is also celebrated as Teacher's Day in India since 1962. This is the primary reason why countries celebrate this day on different dates, unlike many other International Days.

Importance of Teachers in our Society

Teachers don't get enough credit for the hard work they continuously do during school, and after. Here are seven reasons why teachers are so important. Every child, no matter where they come from, deserves great teachers. Passionate, motivating, effective teachers are the foundation of a quality education; and a quality education opens the doors to a lifetime of opportunity. Research shows that quality teachers make the difference—not only in students’ academic performance but also in their lifetime success.
