Gov Dannel P. Malloy has proclaimed Tuesday, May 7, 2013 as National Teacher Day in the State of Connecticut.
National Teacher Day is part of Teacher Appreciation Week, which is celebrated May 6-10, 2013.
“While today is National Teacher Day, the fact is that the work our teachers do is something that deserves celebration every day,” said Gov. Malloy.
“Improving our public schools is a top priority of my administration, and that includes getting more and better resources and quality professional development to our teachers, so they can prepare the next generation for success in the 21st Century,” Gov. Malloy said.
