World Teachers Day

About World Teachers’ Day

World Teachers’ Day is celebrated around the globe on October 5. Established in 1994 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), its purpose  is to focus attention on the contributions and achievements of teachers, and to highlight teachers’ concerns and priorities regarding education.

In Alberta, we are fortunate to have a public education system full of competent, qualified and motivated teachers who are passionate about their jobs. On October 5, please join the ATA in saying a heartfelt “thank you” to all of the teachers who have made a difference in your life, and the lives of other Albertans.
