Many of the flowers we sell are purchased directly from floral farms. We buy for both domestic and international growers. Buying direct offers great advantages for us and for our customers. There are often significant cost savings when buying from the flower farms. We routinely pass along much of those savings to our customers. Buying direct also reduces the time between when the flowers are cut at the farms and when they arrive here in Rome and Cedartown. By reducing that time frame, we can ensure the flowers arrive fresher. Creating flower arrangements with fresher flowers, means our customers get to enjoy them longer.

Bussey’s Florist has beautiful Flowers and Plants to honor World Teachers’ Day

October 5 is recognized as World Teachers Day. Around the globe this is a day when teachers are honored for the great things, they do to educate young and old alike. World Teachers Day was officially created on October 5, 1994. However, the concept actually occurred earlier in 1966 when there was a conference in Paris with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organizations (UNESCO) and the International Labor Organization (ILO). These groups felt there was a need to better define teachers’ rights, responsibilities and general areas of the teaching profession in all countries.

For teachers this is a great time to think back on a person who influenced them to choose teaching as a profession. What a great day to reach out to them and let them know how they so positively impacted your life. As a teacher ask your students to think back on the things that they value in a teacher and even name a few of their favorites. Make it fun by giving them paper and drawing utensils so they can create a poem, letter or thank you card expressing their gratitude.

If you are part of the school administration, make it a point to celebrate World Teachers Day. Your support for the teachers and encouragement for the parents and students to do the same can result in creative and meaningful memories. Using social media virtual school presentations will go a long way to motivate and keep teachers focused and digging deep to teach.

In the country of India for example, there are many remote regions where the number of female teachers is sparse. Basically, half the number of teachers in remote places. There is a disproportionate number of females to male teachers in pre-primary education verses in upper secondary education. Women tend to have higher numbers of being teachers for primary education in low-income countries than in higher income countries. About half the number. There are lots of other interesting facts surrounding the teaching profession like teachers are the third most trusted profession in the UK following doctors and nurses. Primary school teachers spend on average about 782 years per year teaching. There are over 100 countries that celebrate World Teachers Day.

Teachers play such a vital role in shaping our youth and our future. Show your teacher(s) how much you appreciate them by sending a beautiful floral gift from Bussey’s Florist!
