Date When Celebrated : Always October 5 th
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 ann 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 love to get apples.
If you are a teacher, Happy 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.
