Recognizing the roles and contributions of America’s teachers to building and enhancing the Nation’s civic, cultural, and economic well-being.

    Whereas the purpose of “National Teacher Day”, held on May 6, 2014, is to raise public awareness of the unquantifiable contributions of teachers and to promote greater respect and understanding for the teaching profession; and

    Whereas students, schools, communities, and a number of organizations representing educators are hosting teacher appreciation events in recognition of “National Teacher Day”: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the House of Representatives thanks and promotes the profession of teaching by encouraging students, parents, school administrators, and public officials to participate in teacher appreciation events during “National Teacher Day”.
