Today's Reason to Celebrate

May 5, 2015 is

National Teacher Day

It’s National Teacher Day! Have you ever had a teacher who inspired you, challenged you, or even changed the course of your life? Today is the day to show your appreciation for all the remarkable individuals who have dedicated their lives to teaching. Send a free Teacher Day eCard to express your thanks and appreciation!

In 1944, an Arkansas teacher named Mattye Whyte Woodridge began a campaign to establish a national day that would honor teachers. Woodridge wrote letters to politicians, education leaders, and eventually the first lady, Eleanor Roosevelt. In 1953, Mrs. Roosevelt convinced Congress to proclaim the first National Teacher Day.

Today, the National Education Association sponsors an entire Teacher Appreciation Week, which is full of events and activities. Learn more about the campaign on the official website.

To celebrate National Teacher Day, participate in one of the projects and take a moment to honor the remarkable individuals who have taught you or your children over the years!
