Internationally World Teacher's Day is celebrated on the first Friday in October, however this is usually in the school holidays in Australia, so we celebrate on the last Friday of October. With the theme 'Recovery begins with teachers', World Teachers' Day is a tribute to teachers' vital role in social, economic and intellectual rebuilding.
Teachers are a vitally important education resource. Quality education cannot happen without them. UNESCO estimates that just to reach the goal of achieving universal primary education by 2015, an additional 1.9 million new trained teachers are needed worldwide.
If you feel undervalued or you have had a bad day check out Youtube, a teacher appreciation website or read one of these books. Suddenly you will feel inspired to keep going, you'll be reinvigorated and feel you can be just like 'Ms Frizzle'.
