Celebrating Teachers - World Teachers' Day

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Fri Oct 05, 2018 5:00 pm

Yes, it's today. World Teachers' Day, also known as International Teachers Day, is held annually on October 5.
Did you take an apple for the teacher ?

On October 5, take time to celebrate World Teachers’ Day—a worldwide event launched by the United Nations Organization for Education, Science and Culture (UNESCO) in 1994. Just as Matilda had Ms. Honey, Harry had Dumbledore, and Cady had Ms. Norbury, chances are that you, too, had a favorite teacher who helped you become the person you are today. Considering that teachers mold future generations, taking one day every year to say “thank you” is the least we can do.

Established in 1994, it commemorates the signing of the 1966 UNESCO/ILO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers, which is a standard-setting instrument that addresses the status and situations of teachers around the world.
This recommendation outlines standards relating to education personnel policy, recruitment, and initial training as well as the continuing education of teachers, their employment, and working conditions.
World Teachers' Day aims to focus on "appreciating, assessing and improving the educators of the world" and to provide an opportunity to consider issues related to teachers and teaching.

I remember my first day as a teacher out here in Cambodia, one of my 8yo students asked me a question and I said "Oh, that's a good question. I actually don't know". The whole class fell silent and they all looked at each other in bemusement. Then a girl at the back said "Well, he can't know EVERYTHING!"

It was at that point that the weight of responsibility of being a teacher hit me hard. I realised that they looked at me as some kind of fountain of all knowledge. Then I remembered that actually, at that age, I had the same belief of my teachers too.

It's a big responsibility being a teacher. I'm glad somebody somewhere has acknowledged this. As far as I'm aware, international teachers day isn't recognised in my country back home.
