Today, October 5th, is World Teachers' Day - a day meant to celebrate all those incredible teachers in our lives. According to the World Teachers Day 2010 website:
On World Teachers’ Day 2010 hundreds of thousands of students, parents and activists around the world will pay homage to all teachers who have been directly or indirectly affected by a major crisis.
Be it a humanitarian crisis, such as the earthquake in Haiti and China, or the global economic crisis that has devastated many developed economies over the past year, the role of teachers and other education personnel is vital to social, economic and intellectual rebuilding.
All those who are fighting to provide quality education to children of the world can join teachers and their representative organisations to celebrate the profession and show them their support!While our teachers aren't really working in humanitarian crisis zones, they are certainly working to provide quality education from all around the world in London, England. Our schools are incredibly diverse, and are mostly in inner city locations.
You can participate in World Teachers' Day by:
- adding your teacher & school photos to the WTD 2010 flickr stream. At least go check it out - it's pretty cool to see all these teachers around the world.
- send an e-card to your favourite teacher(s) in English, Francais, Espanol or Deutsch! How cool is that?
- download the posters for your classroom
- tag your tweets with #wtd2010 to have them appear on their website.
- tell everyone you know on facebook, twitter, through email, snail mail or by the old school telephone.
