World Teachers’ Day

banner_1407252028

On World Teachers’ Day, I give thanks for the many teachers who have touched my life.  I give thanks for my many friends who teach. I give thanks for the teachers in my family.

For whom do you give thanks?

A quality education offers hope and the promise of a better standard of living. However, there can be no quality education without competent and motivated teachers. On World Teachers’ Day, the UN highlights the importance of supportive environments, quality training and rights for teachers, and celebrates the crucial role teachers play in shaping our future. Events are held around the world to highlight the importance of education and to offer advice and encouragement for students who wish to begin a teaching career. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization proclaimed this Day in 1994.

See you along the Trail.
