Celebrating World Teacher’s Day – 5th October

Today we are delighted to highlight the importance of teachers on WORLD TEACHER’S DAY. This is a great celebration and acknowledgement of just how much teacher’s are needed, wanted and appreciated. From our very first nursery days, right through to even post-grads, we all rely on them to educate us in all areas.

And, maybe there was always that one teacher in particular who could always get through to you, when others couldn’t? Today is that day to thank them, think of them, take the time to appreciate what you have learnt because of them.

Grammarly have put together a fantastic post, with the infographic below, that really shines a light on teacher’s all over the world. And we thought it would be fantastic to share with you!
