It is World Teacher’s Day. The United Nations celebrates the role teachers play in providing quality education at all levels. Teachers are recognized for the important role they play in the everyday lives of literally hundreds of students they teach as their career. This enables children and adults of all ages to learn to take part in and contribute to their local community and global society. The first World Teacher Day was celebrated in 1994.
