Translated by Begüm ERGİNBAY
“Adventure of all of us started with a blank page and a pencil. Our teachers taught us both writing and reading. They gave us virtue. They gave us knowledge and hold our hands for us to be useful in society. In every stage of our lives, we had teachers like a mother like a father. I am blessed that I tasted this joy as a faculty member with my students.
Every 24th November, the day Mustafa Kemal Atatürk accepted the head teacher of the nation, we celebrate to thank our teachers once more, we come together. We actually thank them from the heart every day in a year but once a year we would like to show this in a day. On this opportunity, I greet our teachers with respect and love.”
