Itâ€™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!
Are you a teacher? What grades and or/ subjects do you teach?
I love being a Teachers Aide!
I teach ballet, jazz, tap and modern dance at the collegiate level.
