What is Teacher Appreciation Day?

Teacher Appreciation Day held annually is where teachers across America are honored and is the main day of celebration for Teacher Appreciation Week. The day was introduced to recognize how teachers contribute to society, not just through providing educational services but through their work to improve the lives of children in America.

Why do we need Teacher Appreciation Day?

There is a huge misconception that teaching is an easy career with short working days and long luxurious summers. In reality, teachers are often overworked and underpaid. Many teachers accept that they have chosen a thankless career and sacrifice their free time and personal funds to provide the best education possible for their students. Just because teachers do not expect to be appreciated does not mean they do not deserve to be.

Teacher Appreciation Day is needed to remind students and parents to show their gratitude to teachers and try to help them in any way possible.

Ways to show appreciation

Today there are many ways to show appreciation towards your teacher or your child’s teacher that can be completed without any planning, including…

Writing a thank you letter or note: Giving a teacher a letter or note expressing their thanks for their role in your community is an excellent way to celebrate national teacher day. It is something a teacher can keep and look at when they feel underappreciated and will help them remember that their work is valued. Check out teacher appreciation letter examples.

Verbal thanks: The power of saying ‘thank you cannot be underestimated. Please remind your child to express gratitude as they enter school today or speak to your child’s teacher at the end of the day and thank them for everything they do. This may seem like a small gesture, but it can make teachers feel like their efforts are noticed and appreciated.
