A tribute to all teachers

Undoubtedly, teachers all over the world play a very essential and influential role in everyone’s life. Regardless how a teacher is, he or she could always make a difference. For students as an example, teachers make a significant contribution in shaping students personalities and attitudes towards life. Some children start their company with teachers at the kindergarten while others in first grade of school. Overall, students initiate their journey of life with teachers since the early years of childhood.


All teachers are admirable and great. They always leave no stone unturned to feed students with knowledge; enlighten them with various life experiences and necessities throughout the school years. They are teachers of life as being not merely teachers, but fathers, brothers and friends for the students. Likewise, female teachers stand as mothers, sisters and friends for the girl students as well. Teachers’ role and goodwill are beyond just teaching and transforming knowledge.


They devotedly teach and benevolently raise students since childhood to make out of them good citizens who contribute in serving the nation through various walks of life. As a matter of fact, teachers are serving the children more than parents do! A teacher is like a candle; it consumes itself to light the way for others.


For many students, their dreams begin with a teacher who believes in them, who pulls, pushes and leads them to the next step in life.


Looking back at our school days, there are some teachers still etching in our memory for they were unique. Perhaps, those teachers could influence our thinking in one way or another. Thus, today, we recall their inspiration that influenced our mental and spiritual growth. A teacher continues to impact a student’s life far after the student has graduated. The teacher’s influence works on a subconscious level, constantly shaping the personality of the student, directly or indirectly.


Certainly, everyone one of us has his unforgettable stories with teachers and school days in general. Some of these were hard stories or incidents that we experienced decades of years back. However, both the tough and easy experiences were useful ways of learning; with no pain no gain. Learning and achieving dreams have never been easy! It has been said that a teacher’s purpose is not to create students in his own image, but to develop students who can create their own image.


Teaching is the core of every other profession as without teachers in all educational institutions, there will be no other professions. All those pilots, engineers, doctors and others were students someday and had been taught by teachers at schools, colleges and universities so they became what they are today. Without the teachers’ encouragement and support, students’ dreams would have never become true.


Therefore, observing the Teacher’s Day, February 24 every year, marks the time to acknowledge the commendable dedication of teachers towards their students. At such moments of celebrations, our feelings deep down in our hearts are filled with happiness and thankfulness to our teachers. We highly appreciate the sacrifice of time and efforts they made for us. May Allah bless all teachers.


This occasion brings the time to show our all as society, students and parents our gratitude and appreciation and express sincere tribute and gratitude to all teachers for their efforts, devotion and sacrifices. Teachers spared no efforts to teach each and every student who are today serving the nation in different fields. That is all because of teachers; they made citizens handling various positions starting from leaders and decision-makers, ministers, businessmen to other ordinary employees. Dear teachers, in teaching you cannot see the fruit of a day’s work. It is invisible and remains so, maybe for twenty years. A teacher takes a hand, opens a mind, and touches a heart. Thus, never give up on your students.
