The youth learning and playing in Austin today will become the skilled and productive workforce of tomorrow. To help guide them on their journey, many Austinites act as teachers in child care centers and schools across our community. For their valuable role, we’re thanking them today on National Teacher Appreciation Day.
The National Education Association describes National Teacher Day as “a day for honoring teachers and recognizing the lasting contributions they make to our lives.” Every day, teachers mold children’s lives in a positive direction.
We support Austin’s child care teachers by hosting the annual Child Care Teachers Symposium, a daylong event of learning, networking and storytelling to motivate and remind teachers while their roles are so important. Almost 300 teachers attended 2018’s event. This year’s Child Care Teachers Symposium is scheduled for August 10 at the Hyatt Regency, with a theme that focuses on teacher-child interaction and positive guidance.
Today, say “Thank you” to the teachers in your life and let them know that they are appreciated. Learn about the teachers in the lives of others by following the hashtag #TeacherAppreciationDay or #NationalTeachersDay on social media. Who are the teachers who inspire you or your children?
