“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.

Wednesday, May 12th is the California Day of the Teacher and this year’s theme is Cultivating Minds & Healing Hearts.
