Teachers have the biggest role in nation building but most times are appreciated the least.
World Teachers’ Day was brought into existence in 1994 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and since then, it has become an annual feature. October 5 is the day earmarked to celebrate the teachers around the globe. As mentors, guides, and knowledge givers, teachers shoulder the responsibility of nurturing the younger generation with wisdom, skills and the right attitude towards life.
Even when the pandemic hit, Teachers have been working hard over the past few weeks to get their classrooms ready for the 2021 school year. It’s been a harder year than most for teachers as they’ve had to adjust to new rules around keeping safe distances between teachers and students.
On World Teachers’ Day, it’s not only about just celebrating every teacher but a wake up call on countries to invest in them and prioritize them in global education recovery efforts so that every learner has access to a qualified and supported teacher.
On this day, IBIENE is giving the opportunity to her readers to celebrate their teachers. Here are some good wishes;
“All the efforts and hard work you’ve invested in bringing out the best in us can never be repaid in mere words. We can only feel grateful for having a teacher like you!
Thank you for teaching me with kindness, Mr Sam. Happy Teachers Day!” – Titilayo Hart
“I hated Mathematics because it was difficult and my parents brought you in for special coaching. I didn’t treat you well at first because I felt you would make my life difficult but as time went by I began to have A’s and became a science student. All because of you Mr. Mike. I celebrate you on this teacher’s day. – Chinyere Nwokeka
“Without a teacher, the life of a student is a life without any direction. Thank you Mrs Maduka for helping me find the meaning to my life. Happy World Teachers’ Day.” -Emeka Obong
“Miss Philip, I was lucky to have a teacher as wonderful as you are. Wishing you a Teacher’s Day that’s full of joyous moments!” Henry Nchobole
“Happy Teachers’ Day Ma! It has been an honour to get to learn so many things from you; thanks for inspiring me Miss Bola.” Wale Ariyo.
“Dear Mr Chike,I felt so sad when I realised what I could study was French. I ran to you hoping you’ll make me change my mind but instead you told me to go ahead. As a French speaker yourself, you helped me out with extra coaching and today I earn a good income and travel the world because I speak French. Thank you and Happy Teacher’s Day 2021!” Zion Mangut
Dear Miss Blessing, My daughter has been coming home from school so excited about her new teacher. Thank you! It’s amazing to see the joy of learning on her face already. Happy Teachers’ Day to you.- Mrs E Adeshina
“My parents were nervous about me starting school again this year, but the way you changed the layout of the classroom helped put all our minds at ease. Thank you Madam Eno. I’m going to miss you when I graduate. Happy Teachers Day ma!”
