How to celebrate Teacher's Day during the COVID-19 Pandemic?

This time last year you must be in your school or college preparing for an amazing event for Teachers’ day. Well, things are different this year with all schools and colleges shut down due to the COVID-19  Pandemic. However you could still make this day worth remembering and special for the teachers who nurtured you, and guided you to build your future.

A teacher could be anyone who has given you valuable advice, taught you a skill, helped you to reach your goal with their experience or someone who has cared for your dreams and believed in you.This Teachers’ Day you can bring a smile to their faces. Here are 7 ways that you can make this day special for your wonderful teachers.

1. Celebrate Teachers' Day with a Twist

Plan a wonderful  event or a celebration with your batch mates that you can showcase on Teacher’s day. Since all classes are being conducted virtually, it’s a good idea to surprise them with a dance or a song performance dedicated specially for them. This can be done via Zoom or Google Meet. You can also put in a few nice words for your teachers. This would make their day very special.

2. Make Your Teachers' Lives Easier

This worldwide pandemic has affected the day to day life of everyone. The teachers are one of the most affected because virtual education was hardly practiced in many countries, so its an all together new experience for our teaching department. There is an opportunity to make your teacher’s life easier by gifting them some Work From Home essentials. A classic blackboard with different markers,  a proper Desktop/Laptop table , a comfortable chair or a sticky notes set would help them deal with their duties in an efficient manner.

Teaching is a very noble profession that shapes the character, caliber, and the future of an individual. If people remember me as a good teacher, that will be the biggest honour for me.

3. Thank Your Favourite Teacher

Is there a teacher you love the most? Is this teacher your favorite  because he/she can understand you? Well this is the perfect time to do something special for them. Henry Brooks Adams said “Teachers affect eternity; no one can tell where their influence stops”. Let your teacher know how much they mean to you by writing something about them in a personalized diary  or sending them some beautiful cards

4. Relive Your Happy Memories

There are so many of us who have passed out from our schools/ colleges and we think about our teachers there. Have you thought about how you got a scolding when you bunked classes and how teachers always used to forgive you no matter how big the mistake was?  This Teachers’ Day, a great idea would be to re-connect with those teachers. You can search them on social media, send a text message or call them and relive those happy happy memories. What you can also do is send them some personalized gifts that could make them feel “Yes I matter”

5. Choose The Perfect Gift Related To Their Job

Teachers are often in love with the subjects they teach . So why not do something for them related to them that is related to their field of work.  We  can adapt the “Go Green” movement and plant a Sampling for our Environmental Science teacher. We can gift our English teacher his/her favorite book (you may check for various recommendations on books Here) .We can also gift a home based Gym Set for our Physical Education teacher, or we can surprise our Physics teacher by solving the entire H.C. Verma. I know that would be a lot to ask but you should be ready for anything to just get a smile on your Teacher’s face who does so much for you, all the year round.

A good teacher is like a candle - it consumes itself to light the way for others.

6. Motivate Your Guardian Angels

Was there a subject which you considered boring but was made interesting by your teacher? Was there a teacher who always motivated you to participate in the co-curricular activities like dramas, stand up performances, workshops and webinars. This is the time you pay them back because they were the ones who believed in you and gave you that extra motivation you needed. If you are good with words, you can write a personalized letter and send a hand-made gift for them. That feeling of a long-lost student who still remembers about the good old days would be incomparable.

7. Plan a Wonderful Performance

We all have teachers who are famous for something( only we students know about that), so why not depict all of that in a drama performance. Yes, I am asking the students to play the role of various teachers! It may sound crazy, but I have experienced this in my school days and trust me this was the most enjoyable part with a Special entry by our Principal. With classes taking place on video streaming apps like Zoom and Google meet, this can be implemented by students of a particular house or a section with a prior few days of planning.
