World Teacher’s Day
In 1994, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization designated October 5th as World Teachers’ Day. It is a day that we use to celebrate the millions of educators around the world who strive to help their students meet their potential.
It wasn’t until I became one myself that I truly realized the amount of hard work, satisfaction, and dedication a good teacher must invest in order to glean successful outcomes. For every hour a teacher spends teaching, they have put at least half an hour into planning. They must constantly revise and edit their lesson plans to suit the diverse set of learners in their classrooms. A teacher spends a lot more time working than just the six hours that comprise the regular school day.
Furthermore, teachers must often play several roles in their student’s lives. Sometimes students who are experiencing social and personal problems often turn to their teacher for advice. These teachers act as mentors. A teacher must be someone who a student can trust, confide in, feel cared for and inspired by.
At Grade Learning, we take great care to ensure that our students are taught by qualified, professional educators to provide the best for the students we value so much. The students, both teens and adults, are the main focus of our teachers. We always have your best interests in mind and will do whatever it takes to help you meet your goal.
Happy World Teachers’ Day!
