Happy Teachers’ Day

As our head teacher Mustafa Kemal Atatürk said; “Globally, teachers are the most altruistic and respected members of their communities.” This was the theme of TAC’s Teachers Day celebration organized by the Second Foreign Languages Department on 24 November. We marked this meaningful day with various skits prepared and presented by TAC teachers and students, meaningful messages, and emphasizing the importance of teaching as a truly sacred profession.

TAC Students Visit the Teachers of ZİÇEV and the Association for the Hearing Impaired

Transcending academic disciplines, teaching is the profession of imparting life skills to students. It is characterized by patience, dedication, selflessness and love. As a long-established academic institution providing education with this awareness for 133 years, TAC reached out to the teachers of the village schools, ZİÇEV and the Association for the Hearing Impaired, which are our partners in community service activities, for the Teachers' Day. TAC students paid a visit to these teachers to thank them for their valuable efforts.
