Huntington Learning Center Celebrates Educators on National Teacher Day

The Huntington Learning Center will celebrate National Teacher Day on May 7, 2019, alongside educators, students, parents and communities around the country. National Teacher Day is an annual celebration and part of Teacher Appreciation Week (May 6-10, 2019), sponsored by the National Education Association (NEA). 

Huntington is pleased to recognize the important role that teachers play in the creation of strong communities and the lives of children, says Eileen Huntington of Huntington Learning. “We have teachers to thank for growing and shaping children and helping them realize their callings in life,” she says. “Teachers build future leaders. They inspire children. And of course, they equip them with the skills and knowledge they need in life and their future careers. During Teacher Appreciation Week and National Teacher Day—and all year long—we applaud their commitment, hard work and passion.” 

Huntington offers parents several suggestions to honor and thank teachers during National Teacher Day and Teacher Appreciation Week:

  • Have your child to write a thank-you note to any current and past teachers sharing what he or she loves about school and the teacher’s class.
  • Write one of your child’s teachers a note of appreciation—or even one of your past teachers who had a positive impact on your life.
  • If you own a retail business or restaurant, offer teachers a discount on their purchases on National Teacher Day.
  • Organize a week of lunches for the teachers at school.
  • Thank a teacher on social media using the #ThankATeacher hashtag.
  • Show your solidarity with teachers by wearing red on Wednesday, May 8, and sharing a photo on social media using the #WearRedForEd hashtag.
  • Post and share a story about great teachers in your life on Facebook or Snapchat. 

National Teacher Day is a longtime celebration and started in 1953 thanks to the encouragement of Eleanor Roosevelt. Congress declared March 7, 1980, as National Teacher Day, and in 1985, the NEA voted to move the event to May.
