#ThankATeacher (Actually, thanks to millions of you!)

During Teacher Appreciation Week, and especially today on National Teacher Appreciation Day, we give thanks to teachers for all their hard work educating and guiding students.

As we said on Today’s Document—our sister site showcasing daily featured documents, it’s always Teacher Appreciation Week at the National Archives!

Our Education Specialists work year-round to provide teachers with free resources for teaching with primary sources. From DC to our National Archives and Presidential Library locations around the country, we create and share lesson plans, learning activities, field trip and professional development opportunities, and multimedia and web content. We’ll continue to tell you about our new and existing resources right here.

And if you don’t already, you can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

This week we’re featuring teachers at work, as seen in the holdings of the National Archives, on our Facebook page.

Remember to #ThankATeacher today!
