Celebrate our educators on California Day of the Teacher, May 10; National School Nurse Day, also May 10; and CTA Education Support Professionals Day, May 16. Our 2023 theme is California Educators: Planting seeds, inspiring students and future educators. Show your appreciation for the work educators do to teach, nurture and inspire our students, and to keep our schools safe and healthy. A few ways to demonstrate support: • Post this poster in your classroom or school hallway! • Have students make and deliver cards to their school educators. • Consider food, gift cards and other items to make the days special. • Use hashtags in school and chapter social media messages of gratitude: #DayoftheTeacher, #SchoolNurseDay and #ESPDay. Find resources and more ideas at Oakland-based artist and social justice activist Favianna Rodriguez created this year 's poster. Educators can find related content from the artist to teach students about art, design, messaging and communications at, including: • A poster template that students can download and make their own; • A teacher 's guide on instructing students in creating effective, impactful posters; • Example slides of dynamic work on topical issues (environment, social justice, gun violence, women's rights, etc.); • A video on how the artist decided on the poster 's design, colors, etc. See more at Celebrate Educators!
