Today, on the occasion of Teachers’ Day, I am giving this speech in English on behalf of all the students of Class IX.
Teachers’ Day is celebrated in India on 5th September every year. It is the birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. This great son of India was an outstanding scholar and teacher. Later on he became the Vice President of Indian republic when Dr. Rajendra Prasad was the President of India. When he died, Radhakrishnan became the President.
Teachers’ Day is observed to pay respect to the teachers of our country. We also pay our respect to our own teachers. Teachers are regarded as the back-bone of our society. They imparts knowledge on various subjects. They have the greatest contribution in building up the character of students and help them to become ideal citizens of our country.
The teachers teach students carefully with utmost sincerity, and love them as their own children. We owe them more than our parents. Our parents bring us up and give us food and drink for our survival, but teachers arouse our hearts with light of knowledge and remove all sorts of ignorance. The study that we do at schools and colleges build the foundation of our character.
According to Brad Henry, “A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning.”
The teachers inspire us to proceed forward, to build our ethics and prepare us to withstand obstacles of our life. The teacher also imparts immense knowledge and wisdom in our lives. On this day, teachers are honoured through various functions and these functions are celebrated at every place throughout the country. The government also pays respect to them by giving different awards. On this day, we give them thanks and honour them by saying, – we are grateful to you dear teachers for all you do for us.
Teachers work hard day and night to bring out the best in students. They unfolds the our hidden talents and creativity. Just like a good gardener, a teacher sows the seeds of moral-ethics within us so that we can become good citizens.

During our childhood and teenage, we spend a lot of our time with our teachers. They become our close friends. We, the students, are true representatives of the teachers. I request every student to follow the advice of teachers and promise to be the ideal and worthy men of India.
