Happy National Teachers Day!

In 1953, Eleanor Roosevelt persuaded the 81st Congress to recognize teachers with
a celebratory day all their own.  Since then, the date of National Teacher
Day has bounced around a bit until 1985, when the National Education
Association declared the first week of May National Teacher Appreciation Week
and the first Tuesday of that month National Teacher Day.  If you’d like
