Every Nation celebrates World Teachers’ Day

Darren August celebrates World Teachers’ Day at Every Nation.

In celebration of World Teachers’ Day (October 5), Every Nation in Springs hosted Darren August to help honour and inspire teachers.

Darren, a corporate trainer, life coach, entrepreneur, radio host and former lecturer, says he has dedicated his life to uplifting the teaching profession.

“Imagine if every church took time out to celebrate teachers and their hard work,” says August.

August believes the church needs to be part of the solution to the crisis in the education system today.

“The answers are clearly not coming from the government or anywhere else.

“The church cannot remain silent.”

He says his book, A Teacher Changed My Life, is a celebration of teachers, as instrumental parts of society – it will definitely have you thinking of the teachers that have impacted your life.

He recalls how, when he was in Grade Twp, his teacher gave him a 13 out of 10 for recitation at the end of the year.

“My mom was confused about the mark.

“So at the beginning of the new year, my mom asked the teacher what it meant,” he explains.

He says the teacher told his mother he was above average and this was her way of expressing that.

“My life and career were greatly impacted by that conversation.

“I stand confidently in front of crowds because of what one teacher said about me so long ago.”

August has also created a T-shirt line, with the slogan ‘Teachers’ lives matter’.

“I want to bring awareness to the dangers teachers face every day as they try to do their work.

“We need to make it hard for everyone to go about their business, acting like this isn’t happening in our society.”

The motivational speaker says even though most people feel they are not responsible for the way things are, no one should choose to sit back and do nothing.
