On Wednesday, May 9, join UTLA in celebrating California "Day of the Teacher" to honor local educators and acknowledge the crucial role teachers play in making sure every student receives a quality education.
This marks the 30th anniversary of the day established to give special recognition to teachers for their contributions to education and the lives of California's children.
This year's theme is:
"California Teachers: Building a better state for public education."
In past years, events have ranged from small celebrations where teachers receive flowers or gifts to plaques at special recognition ceremonies.
