It's World Teachers' Day

When asked me to share their infograph on celebrating the teachers of the world, I said, "Oh Yeah!"

My younger daughter has been a NYC public grammar school teacher for 12 years. She works diligently to help her students learn the work at hand and become better world citizens. 

Teachers help children become tomorrow's workforce, leaders, and heroes. They deserve our recognition and praise.

According to a Japanese proverb, “Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher.” There’s truth in those words, as anyone who has ever had a great teacher will know!

October 5 is World Teachers’ Day, a day to celebrate educators around the world. Teaching is incredibly difficult (and often thankless) work, yet it might just be the world’s most important job. Teachers can and do change lives every day. They inspire generations of students to think, learn, create, and accomplish things they never believed they could do.

There are twenty-nine million primary school teachers around the world, but we still need more. Over three million more, in fact. So, in recognition of teachers and the indispensable work they do, we have created an infographic to highlight their importance around the world:

Don't you think that all authors have a bit of the teacher in them? We all want to share, that's for sure. It's one of the reasons I enjoyed teaching on campus at UCLA for so long!

This is a terrific post, Karen. It warms my heart since I was an elementary teacher and now have two grandsons soon to go to school. Teachers deserve all the credit they can get for working as hard as they do and spending so much of their own money on great teaching materials only available in teacher stores. And for spending so much extra time on preparing lessons, taking courses, etc. Thanks for your post.

Carolyn, I think so. At least that's how I feel. Whether I'm writing fiction or nonfiction, I try to have a take away.

Linda, Grammarly did an excellent job on the infograph. Teachers absolutely deserve our recognition. The give of themselves and as you mentioned, they use their own money for supplies.

My two grandsons are in grammar school (first and fourth grades). :)
