“Before I was placed in Japan I knew I wanted to teach with Project Trust, whatever country I was chosen for. My mother is a teacher so I’ve been wondering for a while whether or not it runs in my blood. I wanted to learn how to project my voice, how to effectively plan and organise a class and involve myself in the community through a rapport with teachers and students.
World Teachers’ Day, held annually on October 5 since 1994, commemorates teachers’ organizations worldwide. Its aim is to mobilize support for teachers and to ensure that the needs of future generations will continue to be met by teachers. According to UNESCO, World Teachers’ Day represents a significant token of the awareness, understanding and appreciation displayed for the vital contribution that teachers make to education and development. Education International (EI) (the global union federation that represents education professionals worldwide) strongly believes that World Teachers’ Day should be internationally recognized and celebrated around the world. EI also believes that the principles of the 1966 and 1997 Recommendations should be considered for implementation in all nations. Over 100 countries observe World Teachers’ Day. The efforts of Education International and its 401 member organizations have contributed to this widely spread recognition. Every year, EI launches a public awareness campaign to highlight the contributions of the teaching profession. Share47 Tweet3 Share Pin +1
A Turkish archaeologist born in 1916, she became the first Muslim women to compete in the Olympics in the 1936 Berlin games as a fencer. She declined an invitation to meet Adolf Hitler on political grounds, and after the conclusion of the Second World War, she trained as an architect and later worked as an academic in Turkey and Germany.
The government first proclaimed Teachers’ Day in 1985, but has never clearly explained why it should fall on 10 September. Some believe it is due to the similar pronunciation between the word “teacher” (教师 jiao shi) and the two digits 9 (九jiu), 10 (十shi) in the date. Some people believe it was an arbitrary choice and have proposed to change it to 28 September, believed to be the birthdate of Confucius. On 5 September 2013, the State Council announced a legislative draft endorsing the change. If adopted, it would effectively make mainland China and Taiwan share the same Teachers’ Day beginning in 2014. Taiwan has observed 28 September as Teachers’ Day since the 1950s.
We want people to understand why food safety and quality are important, and what the key scientific concepts behind that safety are. When people have this knowledge, we can explain the importance of our work and the work of our graduates to provide a sustainable food supply around the world. We teach this knowledge in a number of formats: career seminars, agricultural shows, industry groups and visits to schools. In each case, we are careful to ensure that the content is tailored to the audience for maximum engagement.
Moreover, international organizations such as TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) and Education International organize international, national and local events. In some areas posters are displayed and pupils and ex-pupils are encouraged to send e-cards or letters of appreciation to teachers who made a special or memorable contribution to their education.

In 1952, the Executive Yuan changed it to September, stating that it was calculated to be the precise date in the Gregorian calendar. The festival celebration occurs in the temples of Confucius around the island, known as the “Grand Ceremony Dedicated to Confucius” (祭孔大典). The ceremony begins at 6am with drum beats. 54 musicians are dressed in robes with blue belts, and 36 (or 64) dancers dressed in yellow with green belts. They are led by Confucius’s chief descendant (currently Kung Tsui-chang) and followed by ceremonial officers. Three animals are sacrificed: a cow, a goat, and a pig. The hairs plucked from these sacrificed animals are called the Hairs of Wisdom. In addition, local education institutes and civil offices award certain teachers for their excellence and positive influence.
On October 5, 1994, the first World Teachers’ Day was held. This event has been organized on the same date each year since then. However, local events may be on some other date close to October 5, so that they do not fall during fall (northern hemisphere) or spring (southern hemisphere) school vacations. In 2002, Canada Post issued a postage stamp to commemorate World Teachers’ Day.
Theresa in Japan “I remember once watching a Tim Minchin speech when he said that at one point in your life, everyone should be a teacher. He said: “Share your ideas. Don’t take for granted your education. Rejoice in what you learn, and spray it.” As a Language Linking Global Thinking participant, I’m passionate about global citizenship and realise that global citizenship and education go hand and in hand. “As of right now, my partner Eloise and I are assistant teachers. This is a good set of training-wheels but I’m looking forward to gaining responsibility in the classroom and getting a chance to figure out whether a career in education is for me.” Below is Theresa’s first message to the class at Kirkwall Grammar school. You can follow her Language Linking, Global Thinking blog here. Hey Language Linkers Global Thinkers! Konnichiwa! I’m sorry it has taken so long to check in with you. It has nearly been a full month since I arrived in the Land of The Rising Sun and despite the rapid pace of the city I seem to be in no rush to settle in. I will write a blog of my first major experiences very soon but this is a short introduction post to find out a little bit about who will be your eyes and ears in Japan for the next year. It’s a shame I didn’t get to meet you before I left but it’ll be even more interesting to meet you when I get back. My name is Theresa, I’m eighteen years old and I finished high school at Culloden Academy before the summer. I lived in Inverness and before that South Uist, so I have a little inside knowledge of Hebridean life. This year I’m volunteering in Japan through Project Trust before studying English at Aberdeen University. I’m hoping this experience will set me up for a life of being a good global citizen and gives me the opportunity to get under the skin of a new culture. Along the way there will be some teaching, some travelling, and lots of interesting food. Although my name is Theresa Peteranna, here it translates to Pe-Ta-A-Na Te-Ri-Sa. So for the year, please feel free to call me Terisa-Chan! Or Sensei, if you feel like it.
This year World Teachers’ Day marks the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the 1966 ILO/UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers. It is also the first world Teachers’ Day (WTD) to be celebrated within the new Global Education 2030 Agenda adopted by the world community one year ago.This year’s theme, “Valuing Teachers, Improving their Status”, embodies the fundamental principles of the fifty-year-old Recommendation while shining a light on the need to support teachers as reflected in the agenda’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). A specific education goal, SDG4, pledges to “Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all”.Teachers are not only pivotal to the right to education they are key to achieving the targets set out in SDG4.The roadmap for the new agenda, the Education 2030 Framework for Action, highlights the fact that teachers are fundamental for equitable and quality education and, as such, must be “adequately trained, recruited and remunerated, motivated and supported within well-resourced, efficient and effectively governed systems”.However, in order to achieve this goal, it is necessary not only to substantially increase the supply of qualified teachers but to motivate them by valuing their work. By 2030, 3.2 million more teachers will be required to achieve universal primary education and 5.1 million more in order to achieve universal lower secondary education.UNESCO with the WTD convening agencies (ILO, UNICEF, UNDP, and EI) and the International Task Force on Teachers, dedicates this day to celebrating a unique intergovernmental commitment – the only international standard-setting instrument on teachers – and reaffirms its commitment to the value of the profession.

For all students of India, Teachers’ Day is like an occasion and opportunity to pay tribute and gratitude to their teachers for their continuous, selfless and precious efforts in shaping the future. They are the reason to enrich all the quality education system in the country and process it continuously without getting tired. Our teachers never consider us less than their own children and teaches us from their heart. As kids we need inspiration and motivation which we surely get from our teachers. They prepare us to tackle any bad situation of the life through the knowledge and patience. Dear teachers, we are really grateful to all of you and would be forever.
A Soviet scientist born into a poor Ukranian peasant family in 1911, she lost her vision and hearing at the age of five. Overcoming these difficulties in a remarkable way, she became a researcher in the field of communication and created a number of scientific works concerning the development of education of deaf-blind children. She was also a teacher, therapist and writer.
The idea of celebrating Teachers’ Day took root in many countries during the 20th century; in most cases, they celebrate a local educator or an important milestone in education (for example, Argentina has commemorated Domingo Faustino Sarmiento’s death on 11 September since 1915, while India has celebrated the birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan (5 September) since 1962, although Hindus, Jains and Buddhists have been honouring teachers by celebrating Guru Purnima for centuries. This is the primary reason why countries celebrate this day on different dates, unlike many other International Days.
Project Trust have placed me in Tokyo for the year. Well… I technically live in the Kanagawa Prefecture, on the other side of the Tama River, which means I commute about half an hour to work like many locals (it’s no too bad when your local train stops at Shibuya). With Eloise, my volunteering partner, we work at Showa Women’s University which also has a kindergarten, elementary school, middle school and British school under its belt.

How to Celebrate World Teachers Day Even thought World Teachers Day might not be widely celebrated in the UK, you can always lead by an example and surprise the favourite teacher of your kids with something small to express your gratitude. There might be small events held at local schools and communities, which you can take part in, or do you own personal deed by sending a small gift or flowers to the teacher. Not only they don’t get much appreciation these days, but there is certainly a lack of support for their profession. Make their voices heard by celebrating their profession not just the one day in year, but throughout the whole year.
