In two simple words, honor your teacher with gratitude.

The Department of Education (DepEd) on Thursday called on students to honor their teachers with simple thanks as it launched the month-long celebration of educators in public and private schools nationwide.

Education Secretary Armin Luistro on Thursday initiated DepEd’s “Thank You, Teacher” campaign as part of celebrations of Teachers’ Month this September and World Teachers’ Day on Oct. 5.


“I think we should regularly take time to revitalize the image of teachers and draw public attention to their value in society,” Education Secretary Armin Luistro said in a statement.

“It is but proper that the country dedicate a whole month to recognize teachers for their unique role in preparing students for the future, in strengthening communities and in building a nation,” said the official.

Luistro also urged students to tap their creativity and say their thank yous in their own unique way, from writing them simple notes and giving tokens to posting messages to their favorite teachers through social media.
