Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation Week occurs on the first full week of May in the United States. Teacher Appreciation Day, also known as National Teacher Day, is on Tuesday, May 4, 2010. Outside the U.S., many other country celebrate Teacher Appreciation every October 5 on World Teachers Day.

According to Wikipedia, the state of Massachusetts adopted September 11 as Teachers' Day back in 1976, and still sets the first Sunday of June as its own Teachers’ Day. However, the National Education Association and the National PTA recognize Teacher Appreciation Week as the first full week of May, annually.

Typical Teacher Appreciation Day gift ideas from school staff or administration may include gift certificates, lunch, and gift baskets. If your faculty has a teacher appreciation ceremony, this is a great opportunity to have a few laughs along side the recognition.
