Happy World Teachers’ Day to teachers everywhere!
Although World Teachers’ Day is held internationally on 5 October, because that date often falls during our school holidays, here in Australia we celebrate it on the last Friday in October — that’s Friday this week!
I think every day is a great day for celebrating teachers and thanking them for the work they do. They are some of the hardest working people I know and sadly, often are abused rather than thanked. Many teachers are suffering burnout and leaving the profession due to lack of support. Some of these teachers are the most dedicated and caring people you would meet and often go beyond to provide wonderful opportunities for their students.
So, teachers, in celebration of you, wherever you are, in this post I am reminding you how amazing you are by sharing some of my favourite videos about teachers and teaching. Each one lets you know that the job you do is incredible, that you do make a difference to your children’s lives and that your relationship with them is vital.
Teachers, you’re doing a great job! Thank you!
