Teachers are very important to society. They are the people who educate the youth, who in turn become the leaders of the next generation. What children learn from their teachers will stay with them for the rest of their lives. The education sector is one of the fastest growing sectors in the United Arab Emirates. At its core, carrying out the mandate of the various educational organisations, are thousands of both local and expatriate teachers.
October 5 is observed each year as World Teachers’ Day. According to UNESCO, World Teachers’ Day represents a significant token of the awareness, understanding and appreciation displayed for the vital contribution that teachers make to education and development.
