February 1 – 7, 2015 marks a time in which we pay homage and give thanks to teachers for their passion and dedication for education. Please watch this short video in which ESTA President, Ray Venables, speaks to teachers about their importance to students and society.
Today is an important day day for education. World Teachers’ Day’s aim is to mobilize support for teachers an to ensure that future generations continue to benefit from a quality education delivered by teachers. On behalf of ESTA, we wish to thank all teachers for their contributions.
Each year, the first week of February is a time to take a moment to express our gratitude to teachers everywhere for their essential roles and their contributions to society. Through your perseverance, students of all ages have the opportunity to learn a variety of skills and knowledge. But teaching is also an art — an immeasurable competency, in my opinion. The ability to inspire and help our students believe in themselves is perhaps never fully recognized by those who do not work in the education field.
Please accept the attached, virtual card of thanks, and I invite you to share the following link with your school/centre administrator and PPO/Home & School organizations: http://www.mels.gouv.qc.ca/semaineenseignants/index_en.asp
La Fédération des syndicats de l’enseignement (FSE-CSQ) and its affiliated unions, in collaboration with the Quebec Provincial Association of teachers (QPAT-APEQ), recently launched a campaign to enhance the value of the teaching profession I teach, I prepare the future. This campaign aims to highlight the passion, the competence and the dedication that teachers demonstrate on a daily basis. Visit their website here and if you know a celebrity who would like to add their voice to the campaign, please send me an email.
By now, schools throughout our school board should have received posters from QPAT and the CTF to highlight World Teachers’ Day. Teachers across Canada will join more than 50 million of their colleagues around the globe marking World Teachers’ Day on October 5th. The national theme for this year’s celebration is “Canadian teachers – doing it right!”
On behalf of ESTA, I’d like to wish you teachers throughout the world a a very special World Teacher’s Day. Your work is important and thank you for doing it right!
On behalf of ESTA, your work is much appreciated!
