Great Teachers Make Great Public Schools
Many school districts and communities like to make National Teacher Day "official" by formally proclaiming the day, a week or more in advance. Here's a sample proclamation. Adapt as necessary for local use.
WHEREAS, teachers make public schools great; and
WHEREAS, teachers work to open students' minds to ideas, knowledge and dreams; and
WHEREAS, teachers keep American democracy alive by laying the foundation for good citizenship; and
WHEREAS, teachers fill many roles, as listeners, explorers, role models, motivators and mentors; and
WHEREAS, teachers continue to influence us long after our school days are only memories;
Now, therefore, I, ____________________________________________,
serving as ____________________________________
Do hereby proclaim Tuesday, May 7, 2013, as
National Teacher Day
I urge that we observe this day by taking time to recognize and acknowledge the impact of teachers on our lives.
Signed this _______________ day of _________________________, 2013.
