We are celebrating local educators all day long!

October 5th is a holiday by the name of "World Teachers' Day," also known as "International Teachers' Day." According to Wikipedia, "its aim is to mobilize support for teachers and to ensure that the needs of future generations will continue to be met by teachers."

We honor a teacher every Friday with our 'Teacher of the Week' award, but we know it's impossible to recognize every amazing teacher with that alone. That's why today, on World Teachers' Day, we asked you to give a shout out to a wonderful teacher in your life. It could be a teacher that you had, a teacher you have now, or maybe it's a teacher that your child has or had. Whoever they are, leave a comment with their name and school so that we can give them a little recognition today! Here are some of the responses from our Facebook page today:
