Celebrating World Teachers’ Day

Today, October 5th, is World Teachers' Day and the Abbotsford School District is celebrating the 1,500+ innovative educators in our district who prepare and inspire our students for a lifetime of success.

Teachers are a cornerstone of quality education systems and play a key role in building inclusive and equitable societies. Today, we celebrate the teachers within our district and commend their dedication, passion and commitment to this profession.

"The District has a vision to provide a world-class, innovative, and individualized educational experience for every student," says Dr. Stan Petersen, Chair for the Abbotsford Board of Education. "Attaining our vision depends on teachers who share their expertise, enthusiasm and dedication in every classroom and school throughout our great district."

"When children are successful, we not only create bright futures for them, but we sew the seeds of optimism and hope for society," notes Dr. Kevin Godden, Superintendent of Schools. "The success of our students can be attributed to the commitment of our educators, we are incredibly thankful to have such caring and outstanding staff in Abbotsford."

United Nations Organization for Education, Science and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) first declared World Teachers' Day in 1994, and it has since become a global celebration of the teaching profession. The day acknowledges achievements in education and gives voice to teachers for their ongoing work in preparing students for life after graduation.

Thank you, #AbbySchools.
