Happy Teachers' Day

"World Teachers’ Day reminds governments and the general public of the role of teachers and of the need to improve their status and working conditions. Above all, it is an opportunity to show appreciation for their work in preparing the next generation to function efficiently in a changing world." from UNESCO. (1998)

Poem by Kevin William Huff

Teachers
Paint their minds
and guide their thoughts
Share their achievements
and advise their faults

Inspire a Love
of knowledge and truth
As you light the path
Which leads our youth

For our future brightens
with each lesson you teach
Each smile you lengthen
Each goal you help reach

For the dawn of each poet
each philosopher and king
Begins with a Teacher
And the wisdom they bring
