Where would we be without teachers? Take a second to think about it. Can you write your name? Thank a teacher. Are you reading the latest bestseller and really enjoying it? Thank a teacher. Do you know the difference between an insect and a spider? How to balance your checkbook? How to drive a car? Thank a teacher. If you found something that you loved and followed a dream, you can probably thank a teacher for that, too.

Origins of Teacher Recognition Day and Teacher Appreciation Week

We learn so much more than we realize from educators. The foundation of nearly everything we do in our adult lives we learn in school. Teachers with dedication and passion pass along an appetite for learning that set us, and our children, on the right path. A path to success and a path to a great future.

We can’t imagine a time when we DIDN’T take a day to recognize and thank teachers everywhere. But when and where did it all start? According to teacher-appreciation.info, you can thank Mattye Whyte Woodbridge, an Arkansas teacher who began a letter writing campaign in 1944. Mattye corresponded with political and educational leaders about the need for a national day of honor, including Eleanor Roosevelt who persuaded congress to proclaim a National Teacher day in 1953.
