National Awareness Holiday

Teacher Appreciation Week is May 2-6, 2022, and this year’s theme is “Teaching is a Work of Heart.” We want to express our gratitude to the outstanding teachers across our nation. Thank you for helping our students thrive – especially during these challenging times!

About Teacher Appreciation Week

The National PTA started Teacher Appreciation Week in 1984. It’s a time to honor teachers for all they do to support students in their learning and development. Teachers need to hear how much their dedication means to students, parents and the community, and Teacher Appreciation Week is the perfect time to let them know.

How to Thank a Teacher During Teacher Appreciation Week

If you’re looking for ways to thank the teachers in your life, The National PTA has extensive resources at pta.org, from cards to social media posts. Other ideas for celebrating teachers are:

  • Having kids draw or paint their teacher’s portrait
  • Sending flowers, gifts or cards
  • Writing a poem or story about the teacher
  • Saying thank you and giving your teacher a hug
  • Contacting a teacher from your past to say thank you
  • Volunteering to help a teacher
  • Sending classroom supplies
  • Organizing a classroom presentation and group gift
  • Featuring a teacher on social media and using #thankateacher

Why We Love Teachers

We love our outstanding teachers because they:

  • Care about students and make kids feel loved, accepted and special
  • Guide children in physical, social, emotional and academic skill development
  • Think of creative ways to help different types of learners understand
  • Wear many hats in the classroom and beyond
  • Love to learn and inspire their passion for learning in others
  • Are an essential part of a greater community of students, parents and other educators
  • Make lasting impacts and prepare us all for the rest of our lives
