Get ready for three special days in May:
- California Day of the Teacher, May 10;
- National School Nurse Day, May 10;
- CTA ESP Day, May 16.
Our 2023 theme for these days is California Educators: Planting seeds, inspiring students and future educators, a nod to the key role educators play not only in nurturing their students, but as mentors and guides for new and rising members of the profession. You’ll find a fold-out poster at the back of the print magazine and also a digital version here.
Show your appreciation for the work educators do to teach and inspire our students and to keep our schools safe and healthy. A few ways to demonstrate support:
- Post the poster in your classroom or school hallway!
- Have students make and deliver cards to their school educators.
- Consider food, gift cards and other items to make the days special.
- Use hashtags in school and chapter social media messages of gratitude: #DayoftheTeacher, #SchoolNurseDay and #ESPDay.

This year’s poster illustrator is Favianna Rodriguez, an Oakland-based artist and social justice activist. She is offering additional content for teachers, including a poster template that can be downloaded for student/educator use, a guide to making effective and powerful posters with example slides, and a short video on her inspiration for the 2023 poster (all available at cta.org/dot).
