It’s World Teachers’ Day! – October 5, 2022

Celebrate #ocsbTeacherDay

No matter who you are, where you live or how long you went to school, chances are there is at least one teacher who made a significant, positive impact on your life!  For me, it’s Mr. Gilroy – he made history come alive. He encouraged critical thinking before it was popular and found faith and beauty in God and nature. His classes were joyful and kind.

Who is your Mr. Gilroy?

Tell us your stories. Share a message of joy about an OCSB teacher who made a difference in your educational journey. Share your joy on social media at #ocsbTeacherDay. By sharing a personal message of joy, you will help us all celebrate World Teachers’ Day.

Join us in making some noise on social media. Let’s recognize those teachers who brighten the lives of all they meet inside and outside the classroom.

We know the Ottawa Catholic School Board is a great community to learn and work. Thanks to all the exceptional employees who make the OCSB a great Board to work and learn. While October 5 is all about our Teachers, here are some other dates to mark in your calendars to acknowledge other essential employee groups.
