When is Teacher Appreciation Day?
... and Teacher Appreciation Week?



Leaf on Pavement

Teacher Appreciation Day in the United States of America is the Tuesday in the first full week of May.


You can find the dates for 21 years, both for Teacher Appreciation Day and Teacher Appreciation Week, below..


Most teachers would probably welcome a thank you card, a poem, or possibly even a small gift in appreciation for all their hard work over the past year(s).




How to Calculate Teacher Appreciation Week and Day

In the United States of America, National Teachers Week, also known as Teacher Appreciation Week, is held in the first full week in May.

The full week is counted as Sunday through Saturday. (The school week is Monday through Friday, and this is how I give it in the 2nd column below.)

Teacher Appreciation Day is the Tuesday during Teacher Appreciation Week. It always falls on the Tuesday on or between May 3rd through May 9th.

It's Easy to Get Busy and Forget


We all know how busy it gets at the end of the school year - tests, report cards, graduations, class outings, etc.

Besides, most everyone - including teachers! - are looking forward to summer vacation.

It's easy to forget the little but very important things, like showing our thanks.

That's why it's a great idea to honor your teacher before you leave the classroom at the end of a year or semester - especially if you won't be coming back - with a thank you card, a poem, or small gift.

Teacher Appreciation in early May is just a way to make sure it happens.

Thank your stars!
