World Teachers’ Day, also known as International Teachers Day, is held annually on October 5 since 1994, commemorates teacher organizations worldwide.
You can’t put a price tag on an excellent teacher that inspires you to achieve excellence. You can’t even say they are worth their weight in gold times 10 bazillion because that estimate would be far too low. Can’t speak for others but as for me, all of my teachers were a blessing and to this day, I am reaping the benefits from the education they gave me.
Sharing links to some of my old blog posts and articles which addressed the topic of education or teachers as my way of giving teachers all around a “digital hug”. 🙂
What a Teacher Does for You
♦ One of my daughters recounts her 7th grade experience with teachers. At least they cared enough to notice she was there. 🙂
♦ A teacher for another one of my daughters recommended this book by Dr. Dyer, when she was in elementary school. It’s a cute poem that helps build a child’s self-esteem. It’s a good book if for no other reason than it uses the words “unstoppable” and “soar” in the title. 🙂 Published a review via HUBPages.
♦ Published this article via Medium and in Higher Education Revolution requested my permission to republish it. What an honor!
This final link share is not mine but if we’re going to talk teacher we can not overlook the importance of the impact technology has on our education system.
During my childhood, the essentials to prepare you for life used to be the 3 Rs – reading, writing and arithmetic. Now there are 3 Rs and 2 Cs. “C” for Coding and the other “C” for Cyber Security. No point denying it or ignoring it. These are necessary skills that should be taught as a part of the educational curriculum for preparing a child to become a productive member of society and the workforce.
