World Teacher’s Day began in 1944 and has since been recognized and celebrated in 100 countries. This special day was started as a tribute to teachers all over the world, in recognition of their priceless role in imparting education and moulding the lives of their students.
True enough, our teachers are the people who guide us throughout our formative years. The lessons they teach—both inside and outside the classroom—plays a determining factor in shaping the kind of individual we eventually grow up to be.
