H. Res. 374

In the House of Representatives, U. S.,

May 20, 2009.  

    Whereas education and knowledge are the foundation of America's current and future strength;

    Whereas teachers and other education staff have earned and deserve the respect of their students and communities for their selfless dedication to community service and the future of our Nation's children;

    Whereas the purpose of “National Teacher Appreciation Week”, held during May 3, 2009, through May 10, 2009, is to raise public awareness of the unquantifiable contributions of teachers and to promote greater respect and understanding for the teaching profession; and

    Whereas a number of organizations representing educators, such as the National Education Association and the National Parent Teacher Association, are hosting teacher appreciation events in recognition of “National Teacher Appreciation Week”: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the House of Representatives thanks and promotes the profession of teaching to encourage students, parents, school administrators, and public officials to participate in teacher appreciation events during National Teacher Appreciation Week.
