World Teachers’ Day, established by UNESCO in 1994, is observed every year on October 5. This day would be a great occasion to let a teacher in your life know how much you value their hard work and contributions. Sending a teacher a gift, card, or email telling them about the difference they've made expanding knowledge and improving lives would let them know how much their efforts are appreciated!
