Teacher Appreciation Month

May 6-10, 2024, is specifically designated as National Teacher Appreciation Week

Recognizing Michigan's hardworking and dedicated educators is an important piece of the Michigan Department of Education's (MDE) strategic initiative. Once again, we will be celebrating Michigan’s teachers during the entire month of May – not just the week of May 6-10!
