To mark World Teachers’ Day this past week, people from across Qatar have been expressing their gratitude for some of the most important people in their lives.
In this video, Teach for Qatar spoke to dozens of school children about their favorite teachers.
Meanwhile, teacher appreciation has been trending in Qatar, with grown-ups reflecting on how their instructors have shaped their lives:
ما من عبارات مدحٍ ولا قصائد شكرٍ تفي حق المعلم الّذي كرّس أغلب أوقاته لينقل طلّابه من ظلمة الجهل إلى نور العلم #يوم_المعلم

Translation: There aren’t enough words of praise or poems of gratitude that would do teachers justice. They spend most of their time taking their students from the darkness of ignorance to the light of knowledge.
