World Teacher Day
About World Teacher Day
When is World Teacher Day? This holiday is always observed on October 5
World Teachers Day is today, an October 5 holiday. Teachers deserve a little recognition, and some thanks and appreciation. Aside from parents and direct family, who else has as much influence on the hearts and minds of a child… your child? Teachers not only educate, but they help to shape and frame your child’s beliefs, values, and behaviors.
Parents and students are encouraged to offer thanks and recognition today. A simple “thanks”, or an ecard is sufficient.
BTW: An apple a day may keep the doctor away. But, teachers do in fact love to get apples.
Be an apple expert. See Apple Trivia
If you are a teacher, Happy World Teacher Day!
How to Celebrate World Teacher Day
- Send an Ecard to them for all that they do for your child.
- Have your child say thanks to their teacher(s).
- Bring an apple to your teacher.
“Millions saw the apple fall, but Newton was the one who asked why.” – – Bernard Barusch
History and Origin of World Teacher Day
World Teachers’ Day was initiated by the Director-General of UNESCO, Federico Mayor, at the International Conference on Education in Geneva in 1993.
On October 5, 1966, a UNESCO and the International Labour Organisation conference adopted a special recommendation on teachers. The date of this event was selected as the date to annually honor and recognize teachers around the world.
