California Day of the Teacher

Location: Statewide

“Day of the Teacher” arose out of legislation co-sponsored by CTA and the Association of Mexican American Educators. Sen. Joseph Montoya wrote the bill and it was adopted in 1982. California has patterned its celebration after the traditional “El Dia del Maestro” festivities observed in Mexico and other Latin American countries. This year's theme is , California Teachers: Honoring our past. Guiding the future. 

Every child deserves a chance to learn and no child succeeds alone.
