It’s Teacher Appreciation Week and around the country thousands of communities are taking time out to honor local educators and acknowledge the crucial role our nation’s teachers play in making sure every student receives a quality education.

NEA Board members took to Capitol Hill last week to ask members of Congress last Thursday to support and co-sponsor Senate Resolution 126 and House Resolution 167 recognizing National Teacher Appreciation Week and Tuesday, May 7, National Teacher Day.

How can you help spread the word about Teacher Appreciation Week and National Teacher Day?

Finally, we’ll be posting a multitude of photos on Instragram to #thankateacher throughout the week.

  5. [...] Yet these are dark days for teacher appreciation for many in our profession. I felt a definite low point at the beginning of April, when I encountered within 48 hours, two popular media sources at opposite ends of the political spectrum (Fox News and The Huffington Post) that openly ridiculed teachers for mistakes they had made. Bashed by the media, harassed by parents who think school should mean nothing but smooth sailing for their kids, fearing for their jobs in a troubled economy, hobbled by implementation of well-intentioned standards, confused by administrators who either micro-manage or lack the long view, teachers are feeling pretty demoralized these days, and at a time when they must negotiate some of the greatest challenges ever to face their profession and the children they teach. No wonder we need Teacher Appreciation Week. [...]
