World Teacher's Day 2020Bluewater District School Board recognizes the invaluable role of teachers in helping to provide our students with the learning and life skills today that best position them to become the leaders of tomorrow.  On World Teachers’ Day, held on October 5, 2020, we join together to show appreciation for the many teachers who have made a difference in our lives and the lives of our children.

This year’s theme for World Teachers’ Day is “Teachers: Leading in crisis, reimagining the future”.  This concept could not be more relevant given the recent changes in public education brought about by the COVID-19 global pandemic.  As we navigate the challenges and uncertainties of this historical time, the leadership and human touch of caring and supportive teachers provide our students and families with a sense of stability, connection, and hope.               

“Thank you to all our amazing teachers in Bluewater District School Board on World Teachers’ Day, and every day, for your passion and commitment to student well-being and success.  We continue to be inspired by your positive example, and the attributes you model to nurture a love of learning and growth mindset among our students in Bruce and Grey counties,” says Chair Jan Johnstone.

“I want to personally acknowledge every Bluewater teacher and education worker for everything you do to empower and guide our students on their paths to career success and becoming caring, contributing adult citizens.  World Teachers’ Day has added meaning this year as we also express our gratitude for the resilience shown by our teachers during the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Director of Education Lori Wilder.   

Help us celebrate World Teachers’ Day by thanking a teacher whose influence has made a positive and lasting impact on you or your child.  You are also invited to share on social media any personal examples where you or your child benefited from the guidance and expertise of a Bluewater District School Board teacher.  Be sure to include the following hashtag in any posts: #BluewaterWTD2020
