On May 5, 2015, Huntington Learning Center of is joining thousands of schools, students and communities to celebrate National Teacher Day, honoring educators and the important role they play in community.
Eileen Huntington of the Huntington Learning Center says there are many ways for schools and community members to celebrate their local teachers and show their appreciation, including the following (as suggested by the National Education Association [NEA], which sponsors the annual celebration):
"Every year on National Teacher Day, we honor the individuals who shape our children's futures and motivate them to achieve academic success and reach their potential," said Huntington. "It is a day near and dear to our hearts at Huntington, and we encourage everyone in our community to recognize the great teachers they know—today and always."
Huntington applauded the Huntington Learning Center teachers. "Our teachers are here because they're passionate about helping children do better in school—many of them working here in the evenings after their regular teaching or other jobs, said Huntington. "We are so grateful not only to our own teachers at Huntington, but to teachers everywhere who dedicate their lives to helping children learn."
