Governor of Nagaland, PB Acharya, and Chief Minister, Neiphiu Rio and Higher & Technical Education minister, Temjen Imna Along  have extended greetings to all the teachers across the state on the occasion of Teachers’ Day.

In his message, Acharya conveyed his good wishes to the entire teaching community and expressed gratitude for their lifetime of dedication and commitment to the great cause of educating the youth.

He also felicitated the teachers engaged in building and strengthening the intellectual and ethical foundations of children. “Let us take the opportunity to convey our wishes to all our teachers, who have given impeccable contribution in shaping us,” the Governor said.

Acharya said teachers spearhead change by shaping and building students’ personality and making them ideal citizens of the country.  Apart from academics, he said “teachers stand by us at every step to guide, motivate and inspire to become better people.” 

Governor also called upon all the teachers to widen the horizon of thinking of the students and encourage them to think critically about broader issues concerning the nation, society and the environment. “Our goal must be to create good citizens who are capable of preserving the past and creating the future,” Acharya said.

Reminding the teachers that influences and experiences they share with their students would remain with them for a lifetime, the governor said teachers were at the same time laying the foundation and the building blocks of the society. 

He reiterated his view that the students, when they pass out, must be an asset to the society, employable and create wealth out of natural resources.

Stating that the lessons in good citizenship inculcated at a young age would go a long way in creating a better society, Acharya said “This could be as simple as traffic rules, cleanliness, gender sensitization, concern for the weak and reverence for the elders. 

Further, describing the teachers as “Gurus” who empower their students with knowledge, the governor said “Knowledge acquired from Gurus should not be self centred but student’s empowerment with knowledge should be used for empowering the society.”

CM: Extending his warm greetings to all teachers, the state chief minister, Neiphiu Rio, thanked them for the efforts being made to create citizens of tomorrow. “I wish the very best to all pray for your good health and success in all your endeavours,” Rio said in a message.

The chief minister said teachers were guides to thousands of students and students were the building blocks of the society. 

Stating that everybody remembers the teachers who made a difference in their lives, he said teachers’ guidance and encouragement help students to build their character and shape them to become ideal citizens of the country. “The selfless role of the teachers who have been catering to the interests and rights of the children is indeed commendable,” he said.

In Nagaland, the chief minister said teachers have made sacrifices for the well being of students and commend both the government school and private school teachers in playing a pivotal role. 

At times, Rio said it may feel that the teachers deserve more material help and support, however, he added that the blessings of students and parents was more valuable than other benefit.

Further, the chief minister congratulated the teachers for having chosen the “most noble profession” and prayed that God bless them abundantly to enable them to continue in the task of nation building.

H&TE minister: Higher Education & Technical Education minister, Temjen Imna Along has extended greetings to all the teachers on the occasion of Teachers’ Day. 

In a press release, Along stated that teachers have been making a difference taking up the noblest profession instilling the passion of learning on the students of the state. 

He hoped that the teachers of the state would continue to shape and inspire the young minds for the betterment of Nagaland and the nation.
