Who takes us when we’re very young, our hopes unborn, our songs unsung like mighty harps with strings unstring?
The answer is a teacher
Who corrects us when we are wrong where we are weak, who makes us strong, who helps us know where we belong?
Of course! It is a teacher
Who gives us, by their dedication guidance, love and inspiration and in the process education
Again, it is a teacher.
Behind each doctor, lawyer, preacher, statesman and president, there’s a teacher. The finger of each human creature can point with pride to some dear teacher for teaching what our parents missed. For all the things that went amiss, we simply want to tell you this –
We honor you, dear teachers
