Happy National Teacher's Day

(Published on - 5/2/2023 2:10:11 PM)



National teacher's dayNational Teacher Day is celebrated annually to honor the hardworking and dedicated individuals who devote their lives to educating the next generation. The history of National Teacher Day dates back to 1953, when Eleanor Roosevelt first proposed the idea to Congress.

At that time, the celebration of the day was not clear, with some schools in certain states already observing the day. But there was no clear consensus on how to celebrate it nationally. The National Education Association (NEA), in partnership with the Kansas State and Indiana State Boards of Education, lobbied Congress to recognize the day as a national holiday for teachers.

Despite their efforts, the first National Teacher Day did not become an official national holiday until 1980. It was celebrated on March 7 until 1984, when it was moved to May. Thanks to the assistance of the National PTA, the day evolved into Teacher Appreciation Week, giving teachers more time to bask in appreciation.

In 1985, the NEA established that National Teacher Appreciation Day would be the first Tuesday of the week. Today, the official national day celebrates teachers by gift-giving and showering them with accolades from students and parents alike. 

As we celebrate National Teacher Day, let us take a moment to appreciate our teachers' hard work and dedication. They play a crucial role in shaping the future of our society and ensuring that our children have the tools they need to succeed. So, let us honor and appreciate them not only on this special day but every day throughout the year.
