Americans celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week during the first full week of May to show appreciation for their hard work and dedication This year, it falls between May 6 – 10. 

Parents typically commemorate the week — and Teacher’s Appreciation Day (May 7) specifically — by sending students to school with flowers, gift cards and other gifts. 

History of Teacher Appreciation Week

Former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt is credited for laying the groundwork for Teacher Appreciation Week. In 1953, she urged Congress to create a day to recognize educators.

After the joint lobbying efforts of the National Education Association and some state boards, March 7, 1980, was recognized as a national day for teachers. The National Parent Teacher Association designated the first full week of May as Teacher Appreciation Week four years later.

Since then, teachers have been celebrated for their contributions to society. Florists, gift shops and many other types of businesses including fast-food franchises use Teacher Appreciation Week discounts and deals to thank educators, boost their image and attract new customers.
