Teacher Appreciation

Teacher Recognition Day is Nebraska’s way of saying “thank you” to its more than 23,000 teachers. It is an opportunity for a public affirmation of the teacher in everyone’s life, the person who made a positive difference.

Nebraska Teacher Recognition Day allows everyone a chance to pay tribute to a teacher whose efforts may have gone beyond the basic transfer of information normally associated with the job. It encourages people to honor a favorite teacher – from the present or the past.

Nebraska Teacher Recognition Day began in 1983. It is celebrated the first Tuesday in March to correspond with National Teacher Day, as declared by Congress in 1953.

The District of Hershey would like to recognize our very own amazing teachers.  We are inviting past alumni, parents, and current students to share a tribute or words of appreciation for our HPS Teachers.  Please post your comments utilizing the Teacher Recognition Day Google Form.  The tributes and or words of appreciation will be shared with teachers and posted to social media.
