Honoring Teachers on World Teacher’s Day

image c/o
Today, hundreds of thousands of students worldwide converge to give special honor to their teachers for their contribution in establishing their moral framework and educational growth. Without teachers, there can be no learning.

Indeed, we have to be thankful for the sacrifices our teachers have endured just to bring us the information and learning that equip us in facing the challenges of our time. They have mold us to what we are now and we would not be able to work toward our dreams and goals if not for the time they have selflessly devoted in teaching us.

I remember talking to an eight year old little girl… I asked her.

“Would you like to be a teacher like your mom when you grow up?”

In response she said…


I was a bit surprised by her answer. In curiosity I asked again…

“Why not?”

“Because she’s always upset when she arrives home”.

Teaching is also a very difficult profession. Not so much about the task, but because of the responsibility you carry on your shoulder and it becomes even heavier when students do not want to cooperate. I guess, the best way to honor our teachers and mentors is to be obedient students.

“World Teachers' Day, held annually on October 5th since 1994, commemorates teachers’ organizations worldwide. Its aim is to mobilize support for teachers and to ensure that the needs of future generations will continue to be met by teachers.

According to UNESCO, World Teachers' Day represents a significant token of the awareness, understanding and appreciation displayed for the vital contribution that teachers make to education and development” (

Teaching is said to be the noblest profession and there is no debate to that. There can be no professionals if there have not been teachers who have imparted knowledge and the ability to use it efficiently. Happy Teachers’ Day to all teachers!
