While there are number of ceremonious occasions to rejoice with your acquaintances, general festivals such as Teacher's Day give you the opportunity to come out and celebrate with your contacts other than your family members, friends and relatives. Teacher's Day is a great opportunity to express your respect to your teachers and extend your gratitude for making you what you are. It is the time to pay tribute to them, who have shaped up your career and imparted knowledge to you, not just to excel academically, but also to develop your persolity.

Teachers have discovered how to make students passiote participants in the instructiol process by providing project-based, participatory, educatiol adventures. They know that in order to get students to truly take responsibility for their own education, the curriculum must relate to their lives, learning activities must engage their tural curiosity, and assessments must measure real accomplishments and be an integral part of learning.Without, teacher we cannot get education and without education we are nothing .Teacher has also role to reforms and revaluation in society. By doing his duty, he spreads literacy in society. By this, illiteracy and ignorance can be removed. We know that ignorance is the base of every problem like high rate of population, poverty, unemployment and pollution. If teacher performs his duty honestly. Our society can also become honest.

Somebody knows teachers as guide because, he directs student's step by step .He stimulates to his students and with his encouragement student learns also extra ordiry things with intelligible way. But today's world is awash in information from a multitude of print and electronic sources. The fundamental job of teaching is no longer to distribute facts but to help children learn how to use them by developing their abilities to think critically, solve problems, make informed judgments, and create knowledge that benefits both the students and society. Freed from the responsibility of being primary information providers, teachers have more time to spend working one-on-one or with small groups of students.

Imagine a school where teaching is considered to be a profession rather than a trade. Teacher also not just provides subject knowledge but he provides the knowledge about the value of spirituality, morality, co-operation and politeness. The day-to-day job of a teacher, rather than broadcasting content, is becoming one of designing and guiding students through engaging learning opportunities. An educator's most important responsibility is to search out and construct meaningful educatiol experiences that allow students to solve real-world problems and show they have learned the big ideas, powerful skills, and habits of mind and heart that meet agreed-on educatiol standards. The result is that the abstract, inert knowledge that students used to memorize from dusty textbooks comes alive as they participate in the creation and extension of new knowledge.

We can learn from teacher by his behaviour. In this thing, we can include punctuality, discipline, tactfulness, softness and handling of difficult problems. I have also learned above thing from my Gurus by continually study of his behaviour toward us. The changes that took place in schools have changed the roles of teachers, too. In the past teachers used to be the major source of knowledge, the leader and educator of their students' school life. Teachers would organise after-school activities. They used to be the authority in the class and often took over the role of parents. Nowadays, teachers provide information and show their students how to tackle them. Although they are still considered to be a kind of leader in the class, they can be thought of as facilitators in the learning process. They are supporters rather than educators and also advisors towards parents. Teacher is not just man to teach something. But In India, teacher is also a Guru who provides every knowledge to students. These students make society and tion. So, with providing good teaching, teacher can make good citizens of tion who respects our elders.

Teacher and its role for reform of society is very important. In this world , there are large number of profession from writing to production , but teaching is a profession which deals with the behaviour of students and teacher can develop the behaviour of students . After developing of the behaviour , students can develop their character . In my words, teacher provides the skill to do work by more efficiently. The need of a generation of teachers who aim to develop learners instead of teaching them, who help their pupils to become independent (learning to learn), who provide students with motivation and interest for life-long learning and urge them to become autonomous learners, is essential in the education of the future.

In many societies teachers are looked upon as the individuals who can help to bring about positive changes in the lives of people. They are seen as tural leaders who can give advice on various affairs of the communities. Within the context of their direct interaction with children, parents and communities, teachers and educators could play several major roles Teachers must allow students to form their own opinions, presenting both sides of an issue-encouraging students to be critical thinkers. The ability to filter events and information and form one's own opinion through critical thinking is a necessary skill for members of society in the 21st Century. Students must be taught to see their world as clearly as possible, so that they might make good decisions for themselves. For example, I will teach students to know when someone is trying to sell them something (commercials for example) and know when to be critical of what they're seeing or reading.

Involving students in the "great things" of the social studies goes along with my persol rrative of the "common thread of humanity" and a passiote interest in the subject matter. Maintaining a dialogue with the subject and teaching students to create a dialogue with the subject are important ingredients in the generation of student involvement and motivation.
