World Teacher’s Day

World Teacher’s Day

“Teaching seems to require the sort of skills one would need to pilot a bus full of live chickens backwards, with no brakes, down a rocky road through the Andes while providing colourful and informative commentary on the scenery”  – Franklin Habit

This amusing quote is enjoyed by all teachers who can relate to the feeling! Teaching is non-stop. It’s chaotic. Challenging. It can be so very frustrating — but just as rewarding and such an immensely huge responsibility.

Teachers are mentors. They inspire, they lead by example, they are a source of strength and support for our community’s most vulnerable -our children.

Teachers give our children voices that deserve to be heard, and understood. They develop their strengths and strengthen their weaknesses, and give them the foundations on which to grow.

World Teachers’ Day is celebrated annually worldwide and brings together governments, multi- and bilateral organizations, NGOs, private sectors, teachers and experts in the field of teaching.

A good teacher has the potential to change a child’s life for the better, to encourage and inspire.

May all children have the privilege of having such teachers.
