California's 2019 Day Of The Teacher is May 8th


This year we will capture and share the great work educators do on a daily basis to help students succeed. Together, we make a difference in the lives of our students. Together, we provide the resources and opportunities they need to succeed. Together, we make sure they have the skills they need for a bright future.


California’s Day of the Teacher has its roots in the community and is patterned after the celebration of the traditional “El Dia del Maestro,” which is observed in Mexico and Latin America countries. Our California’s Day of the Teacher arose out of legislation co-sponsored by CTA and the Association of Mexican American Educators in 1982. This year MCS has proclaimed Wednesday, May 8th as Day of the Teacher.
