Thursday,October 5th was World Teachers Day. To bring awareness to the day, some Weyburn Teachers did something special during their lunch break.
 
"I and two colleagues, Mrs Ryan and Miss Slynn, went out into the community and provide apples for the groups and people we could get to. This was a fun initiative that the Saskatchewan Teachers Federation thought it would be good to do, to go out into the community, as a way to bring awareness to world teachers day and have a little fun to share the food of knowledge," said Chad Klein, Grade five Homeroom Teacher, St Michaels School.
 
Over the lunch period, the teachers handed out 40-50 apples to people including City Hall and the Discover Weyburn News Room.
 
"World Teachers Day is a day where we celebrate the contributions of teachers worldwide. Everything from worldwide all the way down to our local communities. It's a day to appreciate the teachers and what they bring to our schools, our communities and to our youth. It is also a chance to think about that teaches around the world today, don't always have some of the great things we have in Weyburn. Also to remember the job that all teachers are doing to help create positive future for our youth."
 
"The students, definitely the students. Each year and each day working with the students, there's always something new. It's never the sames. There are many different challenges but definitely working with the youth for me and seeing that light bulb go on when they get that "I got it.' and the confidence is there. That for me has been the highlight," explained Klein, when asked what the highlight of his teaching career has been so far.
 
Klein has been teaching for twenty years, since 1997, and said he had great teachers growing up with male and female role models and wanted to be that same kind of caring teacher that he had, to his students.
