About Teacher Appreciation Week - Teacher Appreciation Day
Most countries have a designated day or week to show their appreciation of teachers. Since 1994, there has been an annual recognition of a World Teachers' Day holiday on October 5th. However, numerous countries recognize teachers for their vital contribution to education and development on different dates.
In the United States, Teacher Appreciation Day is celebrated on the Tuesday during Teacher Appreciation Week. Teacher Appreciation Week takes place the first full week of May. An exception to this is the state of Massachusetts. Massachusetts set the first Sunday in June as it's own Teacher Day.
Students, parents, and local businesses sometimes show appreciation for teachers by giving them gifts or recognizing them with awards. Teacher Appreciation Day is a time to honor teachers for the contributions they make to learning, child development and to the community.
