Appreciate your teachers' efforts on World Teachers' Day 2013!!!

 Teachers are the provider of education which is one of the basic rights of our children. And despite facing various obstacles that test their creativity and patience, they steadfastly stand by their commitment to give their mentoring best. 

October 5 is  World Teachers' Day, a special day for the appreciation of educators for their heroic role. Is a day to honor our teachers who play a critical role in guiding children and in providing them lifelong learning and hence help in building a better and developed society.

 “A Call for Teachers!” is the slogan of World Teachers’ Day 2013 (5 October), which UNESCO is celebrating along with its partners, the International Labour Organization (ILO), UNDP, UNICEF and Education International (EI). UNESCO has been celebrating World Teachers’ Day every year on 5th October since 1994 in association with its partners.

At the heart of the educational system, teachers hold the keys to a better future for all. They are a powerful force for peace. By transmitting universal values such as human rights, respect, justice and cultural diversity, they help transform younger generations into global citizens of the 21st century.

The profession of a teacher is losing status in many parts of the world. The World Teachers’ Day is not just a celebration but also calls attention for the need to raise the status of the profession of a teacher. It call is very much needed not only for the benefit of teachers and students, but for society as a whole, to acknowledge the crucial role teachers play in building the future.

Let’s say  "Thank you" to at least one teacher who made a difference in our lives by writing a letter or sending a card.
“Saying 'thank you' is just our simple way of giving back to our teachers who have touched our lives in one way or another. 

Note : Teachers’ Day is celebrated by many countries on different days like India celebrated Teacher’s Day on 5th September, the birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan while United States celebrates National Teacher’s Day on first Tuesday of May.
