Honoring Educators on Teacher Appreciation Day

Tuesday is the day to say “thanks” to that special teacher.

The day is recognized as “Teacher Appreciation Day,” intended to honor educators who influence young people across the country.

In 1985, the National PTA established Teacher Appreciation Week. The National Education Association later voted to make the day an unofficial holiday celebrated on the first full week of May every year.

Here, some of our reporters share what make their favorite teachers so special.
