Great Teachers Make Great Public Schools

This week thousands of communities take time to honor their local educators and acknowledge the important role teachers play in making sure every student receives a quality education. Why a celebration the first week of May? Because this week is the National PTA’s Teacher Appreciation Week and tomorrow, May 3, is National Teacher Day.

We encourage you to celebrate teachers by nominating a “Classroom Superhero” in your community. They don’t have the cape or the flashy tights, but educators rise to a superhero challenge every day. Few people have such an impact on the lives of children and youth and, therefore, on all of us.

You’ll find free teacher appreciation resources and ideas at NEA and the National PTA.

A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.
– Henry Brooks Adams
