World Teacher's Day

World Teaching Day

Today, October 5, 2016, is World Teachers' Day, an occasion to celebrate all of those who shape the minds of future generations. We honor our teachers today at Wayne Highlands School District, and value the education they are providing for our students! Thank you!

Teachers open up young minds,
showing them the wonders of the intellect
and the miracle
of being able to think for themselves.
A teacher exercises
the mental muscles of students,
stretching and strengthening,
so they can make challenging decisions,
find their way in the world,
and become independent.
The best teachers care enough
To gently push and prod students
to do their best
and fulfill their potential.
You are one of those.
Thank you.

World Teachers Day was created by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 1994 to celebrate the educators of the world. The global holiday is held on Oct. 5 each year in recognition of the special intergovernmental conference convened by UNESCO in Paris that adopted the UNESCO/ILO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers on that date in 1966. The recommendation declared education a fundamental human right, acknowledged the essential role of teachers to society, set international standards and defined teachers' responsibilities.
