The Halton District School Board is proud to recognize World Teachers’ Day on Friday, October 5, 2018, as proclaimed by the United Nations (UN) Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.
World Teachers’ Day is devoted to appreciating, assessing, and improving the educators of the world, as well as taking time to look at and address issues pertaining to teachers. World Teachers' Day also celebrates the role teachers play in providing quality education at all levels, which enables children and adults to learn to take part in and contribute to their local community and global society. This year’s theme, ‘The right to education means the right to a qualified teacher,’ has been chosen to remind the global community that the right to education cannot be achieved without the right to trained and qualified teachers.
Teachers at the Halton District School Board support the learning, growth and success of more than 64,000 students. Guided by the Board’s Multi-Year Plan
, teachers help students focus on important values including accountability, collaboration, creativity and integrity.
“The Halton District School Board is extremely proud to have teachers who commit themselves each and every day to working, supporting and educating our students with the respect and inclusivity they deserve,” says Stuart Miller, Director of Education for the Halton District School Board. “We value their dedication to creating collaborative learning environments that help students thrive as contributing global citizens. We also acknowledge our teachers have a wonderful support team, working together and leading our students in their educational endeavours.
