Big Hugs To All Our Fellow Teachers!

We Did Not Know That!

Did you know that Teacher Appreciation Day or Teacher Day is celebrated in many other countries as well?? For instance in Ecuador, Teachers Day is celebrated on April 13th in honor of Juan Montalvo, an Ecuadorian teacher who planted the seeds of developing young minds.
In India, for Teacher Day on September 5th , students and teachers report to school but classes are replaced by activities of celebration, thanks and remembrance. For some schools on this day, the responsibility of teaching is taken up by the senior students to show appreciation for their teachers. On May 15th in Mexico teachers are celebrated with festivities and cultural events. Most schools stop normal activities to promote the importance and dignity of the teachers’ role in society. In Singapore, the first Friday in September is an official school holiday. Celebrations are normally conducted the day before where students put on performance to entertain and honor their teachers.
For us educators, this week marks a time to stop and think about the impact that our own teachers have had in our lives and the influence they may have had in molding our own craft of teaching. Please take the time to in some way dispense gratitude and appreciation for teachers before us, next to us, and those come.
