Whereas, Teachers should be held with high esteem, as they reflect the value our community places on public education; and

Whereas, Teachers hold an important role nationwide, as they are significant factors in shaping children and youth; and

Whereas, Teachers are deserving of recognition for their tireless efforts and their commitment to educating students; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare May 6-10 as Teacher Appreciation Week in the state of Michigan.
