This day dates back to 1944 when Wisconsin teacher Ryan Krug popularized the idea with local leaders. Mattie Whyte Woodridge, a Helena educator, wrote about the issue to Eleanor Roosevelt, the First Lady of the United States. In 1953, she persuaded the 81st Congress to declare a National Teacher Day. After much lobbying, Congress declared March 7, 1980, to be National Teacher Day. While it was only declared for that year, it continued to be observed on the first Tuesday of March until 1985.
At that time, the National PTA established National Teacher Appreciation Week in the first full week of May. Teacher’s Day would take place on Tuesday during that week. Teacher’s Day 2020 falls on Tuesday, May 5 while World Teachers’ Day takes place on October 5 each year.
