What's World Teachers' Day all about? Each year, UNESCO coins a theme. This year's is: "The teachers we need for the education we want: The global imperative to reverse the teacher shortage."

Teaching is a calling that BC educators take seriously, but staff shortages make their jobs harder every day. We need to fix the teacher shortage. On World Teachers' Day, thank a teacher in your life for all they do.

The BC Teachers' Federation thanks the Vancouver Writers Fest for providing the books. Enter to win below.
