Today, in the 21st Century, people say Google is the best teacher.
Stuck with a math problem? “Google it!” Need a tutorial for numerical in Economics? “Google it!” Searching for answers about the Solar System? “Google it!” So yes, Google can give us buckets of information related to various topics.
But is that all? Is that all it takes to be a teacher?
Can a measly search engine really teach today’s kids values? Or morals? Honesty. Perseverance. Patience. Self Esteem.
Does Google teach any of this?
How about being a listening ear? A mentor? Or teach you to reach your full potential?
These values are all instilled in us by our teachers. Our parents. It is these teachers who work day and night to mould the minds of tomorrow’s leaders. Our teachers are the people we look up to. Our parents are real teachers too- they teach us our first words! Teachers are just like mothers who hone the skills of tonnes of children out there and take care of all their needs. They are the people whose values we try to replicate in our lives and whose expectations drive us to achieve our potential. They are the real superheroes and the ones that shape the future of our nation. They nurture the minds of billions of children and their reach goes beyond the four walls of a classroom.
Tomorrow’s minds are influenced by today’s teachers.
What is Teacher’s Day?
It is the one day of the year devoted solely to show our appreciation for our lovely teachers. It is the chance we have to thank them and show them the difference they’ve made in our lives. It is an opportunity to tell them that it is because of their diligence that you can read these words today.
But is just one day really enough? Is just one day sufficient for all of us to show our gratitude to our teachers who we’ve had all the way from kindergarten to college? One day, to thank them for their years of training and hard work?
We at bigsmall.in would like to show our gratitude towards the real superheroes all year long! We believe that someone who has such a huge impact on the lives of so many people needs to be rewarded more. Their appreciation is something that should be done every day, not just annually.
And so, we’ve made a collection of 10 unique and exciting gifts that are bound to brighten any teacher’s day!
