A week to honor teachers

National Teacher Day

PSEA joins the NEA, the PTA, students, and communities across the nation in celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week, May 7-12, and National Teacher Day on May 9.

Teachers' dedication to their students benefits all of us because strong public schools make strong communities. That is the power of a great education.


About National Teacher Day/Teacher Appreciation Week 
National Teacher Day is celebrated each year during the first full week of May. The day celebrates the outstanding work and lifelong dedication of teachers nationwide. National Teacher Day came into being through the leadership and persistence of Eleanor Roosevelt. In 1953, she persuaded the 81st Congress to proclaim May 7 that year as National Teacher Day. The PTA expanded on Roosevelt’s idea and dedicated a whole week to celebrate the accomplishments of educators. PTA’s annual Teacher Appreciation Week honors the dedicated men and women who lend their passion and skills to educating children.
