Celebrate National Teacher Day on May 6

Join millions of educators and other Americans in thanking a teacher on National Teacher Day, May 6.

VEA and NEA are shining a positive light on teachers in several ways.

Through VEA’s partnership with Virginia Public Radio, Virginians across the state will hear special sponsorship messages on their public radio stations. The spot identifies VEA and asks listeners to “thank a teacher on National Teacher Day, May 6.” The message will run from April 29 to May 6. To listen to Virginia Public Radio through the Radio IQ service, click here.  Or check out the VPR list of stations in your area here and keep an ear out for our spots.

NEA is promoting its social media effort that encourages the public to tweet using  the #ThankaTeacher hashtag to indicate their support. Other options are posting on Facebook or posting a quick video on Vine (learn how here).

More traditional ideas, such as proclamations or news releases, are available at NEA’s site ( Artwork also is available there.

Please post and share to support our teachers!
