World Teachers' Day

Every year, World Teachers' Day is celebrated globally on October 5 to honor and pay tribute to all teachers.

The day is recognized to highlight the great role played by teachers and mentors in the lives of students.

A teacher is someone who acts as a guide and inspiration to people, both young and old. He or she is charged with the responsibility of creating awareness as well as opening the minds of people by instilling values, morals, and ethics.

The teacher’s efforts are recognized during Teachers’ Day. We annually celebrate their contribution to the development of society.

Today is World Teachers' Day. It is a day devoted "to appreciating, assessing, and improving the educators of the world."

This internationally recognized day commemorates teachers around the globe and their commitment to children and learning.

Celebrating World Teachers' Day gives us all a chance to reflect on the incredible and crucial role that teachers play in the lives of children and the adults they become.

Its aim is to raise awareness about the role of teachers in facilitating quality education at all levels and to improve the situation of teachers around the world.

On October 12, 1997, the 29th session of UNESCO's General Conference was opened. At this conference, on November 11, 1997, the "Recommendation concerning the Status of Higher Education Teaching Personnel" was adopted.

On October 5, 1994, the first World Teachers' Day was held. It is also known as International Teachers' Day.

In 2022, World Teachers' Day will be celebrated by teachers with the theme "The leadership of teachers in transforming education." The Transformation of Education Begins with Teachers.

Teachers are at the heart of this transformation; they must be trusted and supported to make quality public education a reality for all students.

The day is an occasion to celebrate the teaching profession worldwide, take stock of achievements, and draw attention to the voices of teachers, who are at the heart of efforts to attain the global education target of leaving no one behind.

They teach the future of the world. People say teachers are the second parents in the world.  Everyone cannot teach. Teaching is a vocation. Every great mind was once taught by some brilliant teachers.

I would like to say that teachers have a great responsibility not only to educate the minds of the students but also to educate the hearts of the students to be men and women for others.

Teachers are the torch bearers. These are the ideals for students. They show the true path for students.

Teachers play an important role in the development of any country. This is why it is vital to set aside a day when teachers are given the recognition they deserve.

On this world Teachers’ Day, we wish you joy and happiness. You are amazing teachers, and you only deserve the best. You are our life's inspiration, light and model. We are grateful beyond words that you are our teachers.

Happy Teachers’ Day!
