California Day of the Teacher is MAY 8, with the theme "Great Teaching Is Never Forgotten." We know, we know, that message is as old as — well, Confucius, the sixth century BCE Chinese philosopher whose ideas have been influential through the centuries. But it's absolutely true that educators have an impact that lasts lifetimes. Closely following on MAY 21 is CTA Education Support Professionals Day (which occurs during ESP Week, May 19–25, observed by the state as Classified School Employees Week). Its theme "You Are Awesome!" gives well-deserved praise to those who are integral to student success. See our Day of the Teacher poster at the back of the magazine, and down- load the ESP Day poster at Check out that site and for tips on making the days special for educa- tors in your school. HAPPY CTA EDUCATION SUPPORT PROFESSIONALS DAY May 21, 2019 YOU ARE AWESOME Our school wouldn't be the same without you! #WeAreCTA #WeLoveOurESP 9 A P R I L / M AY 2 019
