National Teacher Appreciation Week and Day: May 8-12 and May 9, 2023

Press Release Number CB23-SFS.67

From The American Presidency Project, Proclamation 5593—National Year of the Teacher and National Teacher Appreciation Day, “When Henry Adams wrote, ‘A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops,’ he expressed a sentiment that any student could share. Teachers help us learn to read, to write, and to count-and how to study. By word and example, teachers impart moral and civic values. During our most formative and impressionable years, teachers help us understand ourselves and the world around us.”

From THE WHITE HOUSE, A Proclamation on National Teacher Appreciation Day and National Teacher Appreciation Week, 2023, “In schools across America, teachers are arriving early to set up classrooms, spending long hours educating students, and staying late to prepare tomorrow’s lesson plans. Their devotion to our children embodies the best of America — ready to serve and eager to see others thrive. Today and during this week, we celebrate our Nation’s remarkable teachers and early childhood educators, and we recommit to having their backs, just as they have ours.”
