During our life, every person can meet a lot of people, but only few of them remain in our memory forever. And among these few people are, of course, our teachers. In all our achievements, whether you are an ordinary person, or a well-known scientist or a politician, first of all, there is a merit of teachers. Indeed, teachers invest their excessive work into each of us. Due to the importance of this noble profession, in addition to the professional holiday Teacher’s Day (5 October), appear monuments devoted to it. As a rule, it is a collective image of a Teacher, and, in particular, the first teacher. Thus, the latest monument to the first teacher appeared October 5, 2016 in the Siberian city of Irkutsk. The new sculpture was installed in the regional center, on the embankment opposite the Pedagogical Institute. The author of the monument – Ilya Stavsky. His sketch “The first teacher surrounded by children” became the winner of the city contest, in which participated 8 creative collectives. The bronze sculpture height of 3 m and weighing about 2 tons was cast at the factory of Moscow region.

In addition, the new bronze sculpture appeared in the Orenburg regional center. The sculpture includes a memorial stele “Annals of the teaching Fame of Orenburg” with the engraved names of the best teachers in the area. Among them – the names of the People’s Teacher of the USSR Nikolai Kalugin, Hero of Socialist Labor Tamara Rodina, laureate of the Order of Lenin Elizaveta Nesterova, and the names of Honored teachers of Russian Federation who are still working in the educational institutions of the region. The idea of creating a monument to the first teacher in the city of Orenburg has arisen during the Year of Teacher in Russia. The five-figure bronze sculpture symbolizes the first teacher to whom come pupils two boys and two girls, walking the steps of the ladder of knowledge. The project was designed by the head of the art factory “Plast” Alexander Yemayev and architect Sergei Solomakha.

The famous artist Oleg Kievsky has designed a unique monument, dedicated to teachers, “My first Teacher.” It is located in Tomsk, near the main building of Tomsk State Pedagogical University. More specifically, in the teachers’ park. It was open to the International Teacher’s Day in 2010. This sculpture represents the first day of school. Behind the desk sits a student and listens attentively to the teacher. Behind him is the original metaphorical board, which is a piece of art in itself. The items placed on the board give it a symbolic meaning. Thus, the letters, numbers, a globe, violin, brush, squirrel, and of course, the book represent school subjects.
