TeacherReady celebrates World Teachers Day by recognizing our teacher candidates and Mentors around the world, and thanking teachers who have made a difference in our lives. For more than 20 years, the annual celebration of World Teachers Day has aimed to support and appreciate teachers and ensure that future generations have access to a quality education.
Many of us remember a teacher who inspired us to be more, to go the extra mile. On this day, TeacherReady team members reflect on a teacher, past or present, who has made a lasting impact on their life:
You were more than my teacher; you were my mentor. Your support, guidance, and wisdom helped shape me into the person I am today. I will always be grateful of the life lessons I learned from you, and how you inspired me to believe in myself. – Jack
You taught me to express myself through music, to meet the great masters of the piano and to be consistent, persistent and dedicated. Thank you very much for the piano lessons! – Tatiana
You taught me how to explore the entire world without ever leaving my chair. We traveled to Mt. Olympia, Camelot, and the heart of the Civil Rights movement in Southern Alabama. They are places I have never stopped visiting, since. You were the greatest guide this traveler has ever known. Thank you. – Mandy
Thank you for teaching me how to get my thoughts organized during the writing process. During high school, I didn’t realize the importance of being able to communicate effectively. Without the skills you taught me, I would not be where I am today. Thank you for believing in me through all those rough drafts. – Sarah
On World Teachers Day, TeacherReady celebrates these teachers and so many others who have changed the lives of their students. We are fortunate to work with passionate educators across the world who share a common goal of helping students succeed, in and out of the classroom. And to our TeacherReady teachers and teacher candidates, Thank you for choosing to be a teacher!
Join us in honoring the masters of their craft by commenting with a “Thank You” to a teacher in your life. Let them know that their work does not go unnoticed.
