  • Teacher Appreciation Day did not become nationally recognized until 1980.
  • In 1984 the National Parent Teacher Association (PTA) designated the the first full week in May as Teacher Appreciation Week.
  • The NEA (National Education Association) states that National Teacher Day is ‚Äúa day of honoring teachers and recognizing the lasting contributions they make to our lives.‚Äù
