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 and PTAs all over the country celebrate an entire Teacher Appreciation Week full of events and activities.

To celebrate National Teacher Appreciation 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!
