Happy World Teachers’ Day!
October the 5th was World Teachers’ Day, and we here at Edublogs are sending out a huge thank you to all of the teachers and educators around the globe!
There is no doubt that educating future generations is the single most important responsibility that exists, and it certainly is no easy task. The dedication, patience, professionalism, and time it takes to reach students and foster their learning is worth celebrating more than just one day each year!
World Teachers’ Day is a joint effort by International Education and The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. You can visit the official World Teachers’ Day website here.
Put together for this week’s celebration, you might enjoy getting a glimpse into these classrooms from across the globe.

Growing the Profession
Also this week, the US Department of Education launched a new website, Teach.gov, aimed at increasing awareness of the teaching profession and encouraging new generations to seek teaching as a career.
The website has considerable information for anyone considering becoming an educator, not just in the US, and also several inspirational videos that showcase the significant job that teachers have.
