Today's Reason to Celebrate

October 05, 2021 was

World Teachers' Day

World Teachers’ Day was established in 1994 to honor and celebrate teachers and teaching organizations worldwide. Teachers have a large impact on children’s development and learning, and they are beloved members of society. They dedicate their lives to children and higher education, and they make the world a better place through a profession that gives back.

World Teachers’ Day was created by UNESCO to recognize the key role that teachers play in the quality and accessibility of education worldwide. The organization sought to commend teachers for their hard work, and set a precedent for excellent and well-resourced educational programs.

Today is the day to recognize your amazing teachers for the hard work they do. It may be your child's current teacher or your favorite teacher from years past. A quick and easy way to say thanks is with a thoughtful Teacher Appreciation card. If you're feeling extra thankful, you can even include an e-gift card from a brand they'll love!
