Now that I am a counsellor and not a teacher, Teachers’ Day somehow resonates less with me. Of course I am still an educator and very much still working with students and teaching them social emotional skills but somehow Teachers’ Day is less meaningful to me than when i was a teacher.
Since counsellors are also very much included in the celebrations, I see as a day to recognise our contributions as educators. I definitely enjoy the celebrations, the annual dinner and the holiday!
Having once been a teacher, I make it a point to take this opportunity to appreciate the teachers I know as well as Daniel’s teachers.
