October 5 — World Teachers' Day

If you can read this, thank a teacher! Begun in 1994 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Teachers' Day celebrates the role of teachers in providing quality education at all levels. It also commemorates the ILO/UNESCO Recommendation Concerning the Status of Teachers, which was adopted at a conference in Paris on Oct. 5, 1966. World Teachers' Day is currently sponsored by UNESCO and Education International. The theme for this year's celebration is "Teachers for gender equality." For more information, including downloads and a list of activities, go to the World Teachers' Day website. And if you're a teacher, THANK YOU for all that you do!
