Teacher Appreciation Day!

Today is the day designated to to say THANK YOU to teachers! Today is Teacher Appreciation Day, the annual day to let teachers know how much we appreciate what they do. Today came about because in 1953 Eleanor Roosevelt convinced Congress to officially proclaim the Tuesday of the first full week in May National Teachers Day. In 1985 Congress made the day official.

I wonder, if you could have something today, what would it be? Would it be a gift card or a discount at your favorite store or would it be the opportunity to say to an administrator, student or parent what is most important to you about educating students? Why did you choose to become a teacher and for those of you who have been at it a long time, why do you stay? If you could do something today, what would it be? How many of you would choose to have the day off from school?

Thank you for the work you do each day educating students in the arts. The work you do goes way beyond the classroom, the seeds you plant in the arts become part of students lives in so many ways, large and small. Enjoy your day and know that you are greatly appreciated! From me to you
