National Teacher Day is a day to To pay tribute to American educators. Sponsored by the National Education Association. Teacher Day falls during the National PTA’s Teacher Appreciation Week.
National Teacher Day
Teacher Appreciation Week 2018 is from Monday, May 7 to Friday, May 11, 2018. During that week is National Teacher Day. In, 2018 it falls on Tuesday, May 8. There is a reason why School Principals’ Day is before National Teacher Day. That way the school Principal will remember which teachers did something for them. LOL Just kidding. Local communities and organizations are encouraged to use this opportunity to honor those who influence and inspire the next generation through their work.
National Teacher Day or known as National Teacher Appreciated Day, is Held the first Tuesday of the first full week of May. While National Teacher Week or known as Teacher Appreciation Week is held the first full week of May.
I believe this celebration falls the first full week in May with the National Teacher Day being that Tuesday of that full week. According to WikiPedia … Congress declared 7 March 1980 as National Teacher Day for that year only. The NEA and its affiliates continued to observe Teacher Day on the first Tuesday in March until 1985, when the National PTA established Teacher Appreciation Week in the first full week of May.
This day is celebrated in different days of the year in other countries.
A special salute and thanks to all teachers everywhere! Not just those teaching elementary, middle school or high school. I would like to also thank those professors at colleges and universities too.
Thank a Teacher
Be sure to thank your teacher for being your teacher. Use this day to take a picture of your teacher or teachers and post them on social media with the hashtags #ThankATeacher.
