Wrap-Up 2022: National Teachers' Appreciation Week
May 2-8 is National Teacher Appreciation Week.
Since 1984, the national Parent Teacher Association has designated one week in May as Teacher Appreciation Week following National Principal's Day on May 1st. This is a special time to honor those who lend their passion and skills to educating our children.
National Teacher Appreciation Day, also known as National Teacher Day, recognizes dedicated educators across the country. As part of Teacher Appreciation Week, the celebration takes place on the Tuesday of the first full week in May each year.
The National Education Association (NEA) describes National Teacher Day “as a day for honoring teachers and recognizing the lasting contributions they make to our lives.”
