World Teacher's Day: October 5th, 2019

Posted by Brian Spence on Sep 30, 2019 8:00:00 AM

World Teachers Day, EducationWorld Teachers Day is right around the corner on October 5th. The holiday started in 1994 to celebrate some of the most influential people in our lives - educators, from preschool teachers to college professors. Although it's a special day created to celebrate educators all over the world, we need to remember to appreciate and support them every day, during the school year and beyond.

Honoring Our Teachers

Teaching has never been an easy job, but the challenges facing today's students, like poverty and mental health issues, make it more challenging than ever. Often, a teacher is one of the first people students turn to when they're going through a tough time because they feel safe talking to them. Many teachers stick with their jobs even when they've fallen out of love with teaching only because they realize the significant impact they have on their students.

In honor of World Teachers Day 2019, here are some ways you can show thankfulness and support for our teachers:

Have Your Child Prepared

Every day, educators walk into their classrooms only to find students with untied shoes, forgotten lunch boxes, or missing homework. These things are expected to happen occasionally, but daily mistakes can cost teachers a lot of precious instruction time. Take a few minutes each night to go over homework with your child and a few minutes each morning to double-check her backpack. If necessary, start waking her up a little earlier in the mornings to give her plenty of time to be prepared for her day at school.

Work With Them

Your child's teacher has his best interest at heart. One of the best ways to show your support is by reinforcing the teacher's rules and expectations at home. Talk to your child's teacher at the beginning of the year to learn these expectations and stay in contact throughout the school year to stay involved in your child's progress.

Volunteer In the Classroom

Teachers can always use helping hands with special classroom events, preparing materials, and one-on-one tutoring. Sparing even a couple of hours a month to assist in the classroom can make a significant difference to your child's teacher. If you don't have in-classroom time available, you can always volunteer to send in some money for materials or print off papers at home.
