October 5th World Teacher’s Day

Today we celebrate those special people who teach our children. The day was created by the Director-General of UNESCO, Frederico Mayor, in 1993. It kind of surprises me that it took so long to make a day for teachers but then they have been overlooked for a long time and in many ways still are. A teacher is a person who has the ability to reach children in ways most of us can’t. They can hold their attention and break down subject matter to the level the child can understand. Please don’t treat your child’s teacher like a baby sitter, they are owed your respect.

How to celebrate – Thank a teacher for their service. Make yourself available for teacher conferences. Volunteer to help a teacher in your free time.
