Celebrate World Teacher Day on October 5th

World Teacher Day

October 5th is World Teacher Day. We want to take a few minutes to say thank you to all the wonderful teachers we, here at PTAsocial, have crossed paths with. We also want to send out our appreciation to all teachers, everywhere.

PTAsocial exists because we believe so strongly in the power of education and the importance of supporting our schools. Teachers are on the front-line of education and we know what a difficult job that is.

So, here's a shout out to all teachers - past and current - who mold minds, touch hearts, and change the course of lives.
