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’s 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.
Thank a teacher or professor today for their valuable work, and let them know that they are appreciated and admired. Make a baked good for them, give them a gift card to their favorite restaurant, or send them a digital thank you card.
