World Teachers’ Day

October 5th is World Teachers’ Day, and though I appreciate teachers every single day, I’m glad to have this day to shine a global spotlight on them! I’m also glad that Grammarly came up with one of their brilliant infographics to celebrate, too!

But first, a thank you to the teacher who taught me to love grammar and words and Shakespeare and reading and writing and…well, I think you get the picture. Technically, I never sat in my mom’s classrooms, but I learned from her every day of my life. And now that I think about it, I’m still learning from her. Mom–and all the teachers through the years–you may be gone but you’re never, ever forgotten!

Make a lasting impression. Be a teacher!

World Teacher Day

P.S. I loved many of those books and movies about teachers, but my favorite all-time teacher’s movie? To Sir With Love. Oh. My. Word. Sidney Poitier. Lulu singing that song? London in the 60’s? Okay, that’s it. I need a To Sir With Love break.

  1. Love this post, Cathy. The movie and the music ring in my heart, too. I have many teachers to thank for the inspiration, care, and thought during my school days. You drummed up some sweet memories for me-thank you 🙂 Enjoy your day!

  2. I was going to comment on “To Sir With Love” and then there it was when I scrolled down. Mr. Holland’s Opus was also mentioned by someone. My dad was a teacher, and he changed lives, too…I met some of his students, and it was a little weird for my 10-year-old self to have these high schoolers going on about him. I always knew I was lucky, but after that, I didn’t take it for granted quite so much. Great post, Cathy.
