Since 1994, World Teachers' Day is celebrated across the world on October 5. The importance of teachers has been recognized by UNESCO as appreciation for the vital contribution that teachers make to education and development. Over 100 countries observed World Teachers' Day. Education International (EI) the global union federation that represents education professionals, launches a public awareness campaign every year to highlight the contributions of teaching profession.
In the Philippines, Teachers' Day is actually celebrated in schools between the months of September and October by Presidential Proclamation No. 479 to honor more than 500,000 teachers nationwide. These activities are planned by senior students in the Student Council/Government who coordinate the activities well in advance.
Teacher as they say, makes man perfect. They could make a wonderful experience and difference into the lives of their students. What is sometimes lacking in their homes, the teacher fills it and try to save what was left of them.
Teacher motivates, does not put an end to a dream or goal or strength or ability of his/her students. Teacher let his/her students to come out and bring the best in them and from them. Teacher equips his/her students to learn how to learn.
