Teacher`s Day!


Hello dear all!

Today I am gonna talk about the origin of the teacher profession. It started in Greece a long time ago with a kind of profession so-called Paedagogus, who was the slave responsible for providing the conditions for the children learn. The paedagogus usually used to be the smartest slave a family had, which the rich aristocrat could choose to help in the development of the children of the family.

However, the profession  role has changed a lot in the centures. After slavery time in Greece, we had the the sophists time, when the sophists charged for teaching. Socrates criticized it a lot, comparing them to prostitutes. According to Socrates, knowledge would be free of charge. However, Socrates came from a rich family, so he didn`t need to work !

We had the World Teacher`s Day, in October, 5th, around the world and today the date is celebrated in Brazil.

Congratulations, not only to teachers, but also to all those who believe in the importance of Education!
