Teachers' Day is the perfect occasion to convey to your teachers the regard and respect you have for them. In India, Teachers' Day is celebrated every year on September 5 - the birth anniversary of the first Vice President of India and exemplary teacher Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. This year, Teachers' Day falls on a Saturday. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, schools in the country have moved their classes online and resorted to digital learning. While Teachers' Day is usually celebrated in schools with a number of events and activities, those will obviously not take place in 2020.
However, that is no reason to not celebrate Teachers' Day. You can tell your teachers and professors how much they mean to you with the help of these quotes. Send a quote to your teachers and let them know how much you appreciate their hard work.
