Teachers are being celebrated, May 5-11, for their roles and influences on young people around the world.
They change the lives of millions of children every day, and their work and impact extend far beyond the boundaries of the classroom.
Since 1984, the National PTA has designated one week in May as a special time to honor the men and women who lend their passion and skills to educating young people.
