October 5th is the annual UNESCO-originated World Teacher Day. I’ve just added these resources to The Best Resources To Learn About World Teachers Day:

UNESCO has created an online photo exhibit they describe in this way:

This exhibition presents snapshots of teachers exercising their profession in difficult circumstances – in remote rural communities, in zones recovering from conflict, in areas struck by natural disasters. They show teachers working with migrants, refugees, with children from nomadic families or with special needs.

In addition, UNESCO is collecting stories from teachers and students this year (2010):

“Recovery begins with teachers” is the theme of this year’s World Teachers’ Day (5 October). It celebrates teachers involved in recovery and growth from conflicts, natural disasters, economic crises, HIV/AIDS, violence in schools and other critical situations.

If you are such a teacher, or if you know one, please tell UNESCO about it through stories, photos and videos (2 minutes maximum).
