On October 5, 1994, the first World Teachers' Day was held after an initiative of the Special Intergovernmental Conference on the Status of Teachers signed by representatives of UNESCO and International Labour Organization. This event has been organized on the same date each year since then.
The United Nations' (UN) World Teachers' Day celebrates the role teachers play in providing quality education at all levels. This enables children and adults of all ages to learn to take part in and contribute to their local community and global society. International organizations such as TESOL and Education International organize international, national and local events.
In some areas posters are displayed and pupils and ex-pupils are encouraged to send e-cards or letters of appreciation to teachers who made a special or memorable contribution to their education.
On this special day, thank you teachers for you are the most powerful source of Quality Education. Click on this link:http://mumimariatefl.blogspot.
