Teachers’ Day celebration is one of the memorable events during school days for everyone. Again it’s time to thank those wonderful teachers who are the backbone of our society.

Do not forget that teachers are the source of knowledge and wisdom. They are the dynamic support for the students and always encourage them to cross every hurdle. Apart from academics, they teach students the moral values that make them complete human beings. Teachers are the living inspiration for students. So, plan out something to make your teachers feel special on this day.
Following are some of the ideas that can help you to make it a memorable day with your teachers:
1. Greeting Cards:
Colors are everyone’s favorite and handmade cards are always valued. It carries the emotions and makes the teacher feel how special he or she is. So, take out your crayons and show your creativity to impress your teacher. Decorate it with glitters and write a lovely message for your teacher.
A single stick of rose or a bouquet of flowers can surely make your teacher happy. It would be good if you know the favorite flower of your teacher. Besides a flower, add a compliment while wishing your teacher. This would definitely bring a smile to her face. Tell her why you admire her. In case you have passed your school or college, just send a bouquet of flowers to her home.
3. Small Gift:
Teachers never expect gifts from their students but on this day, you can gift a pen or diary that she can use. No matter how digital the world goes, a teacher always carries a diary and a pen. Your small gift will express your love towards her. Any such gift can be made more special with her name engraved on it. She will remember you for a long time for all such small efforts to make her happy.
4. Share Memories:
Do not forget to share all your good experiences with your teachers. Especially discuss the positive values that you have gained from them. Tell your teachers that besides academic knowledge they have given you a perspective to live life. Praise them for their thankless job. If you are an ex-student, share all your good memories. As a student what were the things that you noticed about your teacher, share all such secrets.
5. Note of Appreciation:
In your own words, write a message for your teacher. Pen down all the respect and love that you feel for her. Beautiful words have the power to strike a chord in emotions. A note in your own handwriting will surely make the teacher happy. There are chances that she keeps your letter safe in a book and cherish it in future too.
6. Make a Collage:
This can be a wonderful idea. Just collect all the photographs of your batch with your teacher and portray them in a style. Add small messages in the space left vacant in the college. Decorate it with all your craft material and keep it simple. In case you have passed your school or college, you can get the messages from your friends and collectively write on the collage.
7. Write a Poem:
Writing a poem can be a difficult task but even four lines written for a teacher would make her happy. Especially if she is your language teacher, she would be more than happy. You can take the help of the internet and rephrase something in your own words.
8. Welcome Your Teacher:
Just keep aside all your notorious plans and give respect to your teachers. Behave like decent students and listen to them. Do not make any mischief in class that annoys your teachers. They would really be surprised at such behaviour. It is one of the easiest things to make your teachers happy.
9. Go for Lunch:
If you are an ex-student and want to spend some time with your teacher on this occasion, plan for lunch. Inform your teacher beforehand so that she can easily manage her time. Call all your batch mates and plan a lunch at a restaurant. Surprise your teacher with a bouquet of flowers and a small gift after lunch.
10. Gift a Book:
Books are my best friends and teachers always love to read. Try to find out what books they love to read. Search out the market and find the best collection in that particular category. Select a book and wrap it beautifully. Such gifts are highly praised by the teachers.
You must have got some idea about how you are going to make this Teachers’ Day special for your teachers. Make the most of this opportunity and express all your feelings for them.
