Celebrate World Teachers’ Day with #just1word

September 15 2016

We want to hear from you!

In honour of World Teachers’ Day this October 5, the College is asking you to describe your favourite teacher (past or present) in Just One Word.

Olympian Rosie MacLennan, actor Eric McCormack and Chef Alvin Leung use “patience”, “open” and “tough” to honour theirs. We use four words — “care”, “trust”, “respect” and “integrity” — to describe the ethical standards that OCTs demonstrate daily.

What one word will you use to celebrate that special teacher in your life? Share your thoughts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram by September 28 and look for the unveiling of the results in early October.
