Letter to the House in Support of a Resolution on National Teacher Week

May 03, 2010

Dear Representative:

On behalf of the National Education Association's (NEA) 3.2 million members, we urge you to add your name as a cosponsor of a resolution introduced by Representatives Graves (R-MO) and Guthrie (R-KY) recognizing the unique and essential contributions of our nation’s teachers.

Few professionals touch as many people as teachers do.  They work to open students' minds to ideas, knowledge, and dreams.  They keep American democracy alive by laying the foundation for good citizenship.  And, teachers fill many roles, as listeners, explorers, role models, motivators and mentors.

The Graves-Guthrie resolution promotes the profession of teaching and encourages students, parents, school administrators, and public officials to participate in teacher appreciation events during National Teacher Week, scheduled for May 3-7, 2010.

To add your support to this resolution, please contact Mark Ratto in the office of Representative Graves at or 5-7041 or Megan Spindel in the office of Representative Guthrie at or 5-3501. 

Thank you.


Kim Anderson 
Director of Government Relations
