October 5 is World Teachers’ Day and the York Catholic District School Board wants to extend our appreciation and thanks to all our teachers for their dedication to and excellence in Catholic education.
Pope Francis, who was a teacher himself, said that “educating is an act of love; it is like giving life.” The love that York Catholic teachers have for their students and their vocation is easy to see. And by sharing love during the most difficult days of the pandemic, York Catholic teachers made all the difference for many students.
Because of this, on World Teachers’ Day, we are happy to recognize the more than 5,000 York Catholic teachers who share their God-given talents daily.
Today we thank our teachers for honouring the diversity of every student, for supporting the well-being of all and for their daily commitment to academic excellence. We know their work continues to make a difference in the lives of our students, our families and our communities.
