Tags: News 


Teacher Appreciation Week will be celebrated May 6-10. National Teacher Day will be recognized on Tuesday, May 7. Find more suggestions at http://www.nea.org/grants/1359.htm


Make a real difference in the lives of amazing teachers nationwide by taking these five easy actions:

  1. Urge your elected leaders to stand up for teachers and students by restoring funding for early childhood education, special ed, college work-study and more. 
  2. Ask Congress to support educators where it really counts, in their pocketbooks. 
  3. Support public education by making a donation to the NEA Foundation.  
  4. Nominate an amazing teacher for People Magazine’s 2013 Teacher of the Year Award. 
  5. Visit your local school and find out how you can help. Volunteer in the concession stand at a football game, donate supplies, or chaperone an event.

On Tuesday, May 7 join our celebration of amazing teachers by:

  • Updating your Facebook status to thank a teacher who made a difference in your life.  
  • Signing our “Thank an Educator” pledge to show your support and appreciation - go to www.nea.org/teacherday
  • Joining our #thankateacher conversation to raise awareness about the vital role teachers play in the lives of students.  Here are a few sample tweets you can use:
    •  If you can write your name, #thankateacher
    •  If you followed your dreams, #thankateacher
    •  If you can read, #thankateacher
    •  If you can speak a second language, #thankateacher
