World Teachers' Day
World Teachers’ Day is celebrated annually in October. This is a day to honor teachers and teacher organizations. Teachers make a vital contribution to the education and development of our future leaders. More than 100 different countries observe this holiday.
World Teachers’ Day was proclaimed by UNESCO in 1994, celebrating the great step made for teachers on October 5, 1966, when a special intergovernmental conference convened by UNESCO in Paris adopted the UNESCO/ILO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers, in cooperation with the ILO.
Thank a teacher today. Use #WorldTeachersDay and post photos of your favorite teacher on social media.
