Our teachers have contributed to the world through decades of teaching and creating excellent professionals.
The teacher pointed us in the right direction on our journeys so we wouldn’t get lost in the real world’s complicated maze.
Since October 5, 1994, teachers all over the world have been celebrated and given awards for the time and effort they put into shaping their students and encouraging them to face challenges and reach their goals.
Every year on October 5th, people worldwide take time to honor and thank their teachers.
As set by UNESCO, each year, World Teachers’ Day is celebrated with different themes.
2016 – “Valuing Teachers, Improving Their Status.”
2017 – “Teaching in Freedom, Empowering Teachers.”
2018 – “The right to education means the right to a qualified teacher.”
2019 – “Young Teachers: The Future of the Profession.”
2020 – “Teachers: Leading in crisis, reimagining the future. “
2021 – “Teachers at the heart of education recovery.”
How do we celebrate it?
Everyone can celebrate it by showing appreciation to their teachers. For instance, giving gifts or written messages to their favorite teachers or the teachers they appreciate the most. Because these small ways of showing appreciation can mean a lot to their teacher, letting them know that their hard work is noticed and appreciated.
October 5th is World Teachers’ Day. However, different countries celebrate it at other times. Still, it doesn’t affect the fact that they are celebrating Teachers’ Day to show their appreciation to their teachers.
Even if the world celebrates World Teachers’ Day at different times, it still means that they celebrate it with the heart of appreciation. The world sees that their teachers are doing their best to guide their students.
So today, October 5th, we celebrate World Teachers’ Day because we see, appreciate, and recognize our teachers all across the globe.
