National Teacher Day History
National Teacher Day provides an opportunity to recognize and show appreciation for the enormous impact that this nation's teachers have made and continue to make on its youth.
In 1953, an Arkansas teacher wrote to Eleanor Roosevelt about the need to recognize and honor the nation's teachers. Mrs. Roosevelt persuaded Congress to proclaim a day in May as National Teacher Day. National Teacher Day is celebrated on Tuesday of National Teacher Week; this week is observed the first full school week of May each year.
