At Genius Plaza, we celebrate teachers every day, but today is even more special because we are celebrating World Teachers’ Day.
The History of World Teachers’ Day
According to UNESCO, World Teachers’ Day has been held annually on October 5th since 1994 to commemorate the anniversary of the signing of the 1966 UNESCO/ILO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers.
This year, the theme followed the “adoption of the new Sustainable Development Goals in September 2015, when teacher empowerment was reaffirmed as a top priority in all education and development strategies.”
For us, it is another opportunity for us to say thank you to teachers – and this year we are doing it with eBooks.
This eBook by a future scientist includes quotes about education from “very famous people.” This eBook by a future doctor speaks about the importance of teachers. This one is in Spanish and is titled “The Teacher and his/her students.” This one is one of my favorites, and is titled “The Teacher Who Taught Me To Read Books.”
