NATIONAL TEACHER APPRECIATION DAY HISTORY
Political and educational leaders began discussions for a day to honor teachers in 1944. In 1953, Eleanor Roosevelt persuaded the 81st Congress to proclaim National Teachers’ Day. Congress declared March 7, 1980, as National Teacher Day. The National Education Association continued to observe Teacher Day on the first Tuesday in March until 1985 when 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.
Today is National Teacher Day in the U.S. and this week is Teacher Appreciation Week, so we just want to give a big thank you to all our teachers here at the University Settlement Adult Literacy Program! It’s been a big challenge switching over from regular classes to online classes, but they’ve done a great job! Thank you for all your hard work and patience!
