Does your child have a favorite teacher? Are your afternoons full of stories about how “my teacher did this” or “my teacher did that?” Chances are, there's at least one teacher that has impacted your child in the most positive way. You probably remember your favorite teacher too, no matter how much time has passed.

Not only do teachers fill students’ days with reading, writing and arithmetic, but the really great ones also encourage kids to be their best, see potential in kids that don't see it in themselves and are sometimes the only person students feel like they can talk to. In celebration of World Teacher’s Day this October 5, show that special teacher in your child’s life that what they do really matters.

For many teachers, lunchtime is not much of a break.
