“On World Teacher’s Day, let us celebrate the profound impact of teachers on society not just today but every day. This year’s theme “The Transformation of Education Begins with Teachers” illuminates the vital role educators play in shaping our world.
Teachers are not just transmitters of knowledge but also facilitators of critical consciousness, empowerment and social transformation. When they engage in a dynamic partnership with their students, they can foster a democratic and equitable learning environment that promotes active participation and the development of socially responsible citizens.
In a rapidly evolving world, teachers stand at the frontlines of educational innovation. They can best adapt new technologies, teaching methods, to diverse learning needs, ensuring that education remains inclusive and relevant. As we recover from global disruptions, including the COVID-19 global pandemic, we should recall the need for teachers and their resilience and adaptability to take on the challenges of online and remote teaching and learning.
As we celebrate World Teacher’s Day, let us honour and appreciate teachers for their unwavering commitment to nurturing minds, fostering creativity, and building a brighter future. Let us also not forget their important role in transforming education and shaping a world where every student, both child and adult, can learn, thrive and fulfil their potential.”
