Teacher’s Day

Teachers Day

Traditionally, the Tuesday of the first full week of May is the National Teacher Day in the USA. Therefore the actual date varies from one year to another. Teacher Day is a remarkable occasion for all of us to show our teacher appreciation, whether we are students or we wish to compliment a former teacher, or our kids’ teachers. Additionally, the whole week is considered as the Teacher Appreciation Week, and lots of activities are carried out on this occasion.
The origins of Teacher Day are murky. Around 1944 Arkansas teacher Mattye Whyte Woodridge began corresponding with political and education leaders about the need for a national day to honor teachers and show teacher appreciation. Woodbridge wrote to Eleanor Roosevelt who in 1953 persuaded the 81st Congress to proclaim a National Teacher Day that would serve to the purpose of celebrating teacher appreciation across the nation.
The National Education Association (NEA) along with its Kansas and Indiana state affiliates and the Dodge City (Kan.) local lobbied Congress to create a national day celebrating teachers. Congress declared March 7, 1980, as National Teacher Day for that year only. NEA and its affiliates continued to observe Teacher Day on the first Tuesday in March until 1985, when NEA and the National PTA established Teacher Appreciation Week as the first full week of May. The NEA Representative Assembly then voted to make the Tuesday of that week National Teacher Day.

National Teacher Day focuses on the contributions teachers make to help children succeed in school and in life. Showing our teacher appreciation shouldn’t be limited to this week and day, but establishing a particular time of the year for teacher appreciation helps us to remember how important teachers are in society.
The State of Massachussetts has its own separate Teachers’ Day since 1976, on the 11th of September.
The World Teacher’s Day is October 5th.
