Pensions:

                              S. Res. 126

       Whereas education is the foundation of the current and 
     future strength of the United States;
       Whereas teachers and other education staff have earned and 
     deserve the respect of students and communities for selfless 
     dedication to children in the United States;
       Whereas the purpose of ``National Teacher Appreciation 
     Week'', which is May 6, 2013, through May 10, 2013, is to 
     raise public awareness of the important contributions of 
     teachers and to promote greater respect and understanding for 
     the teaching profession;
       Whereas the teachers of the United States play an important 
     role in preparing children to be positive and contributing 
     members of society; and
       Whereas students, schools, communities, and a number of 
     organizations host teacher appreciation events in recognition 
     of ``National Teacher Appreciation Week'': Now, therefore, be 
     it
       Resolved, That the Senate--
       (1) thanks teachers for their service;
       (2) promotes the profession of teaching; and
       (3) recognizes students, parents, school administrators, 
     and public officials who participate in teacher appreciation 
     events during ``National Teacher Appreciation Week''.
