NEA's Teacher Thank You Project

Unveiled in 2009 by NEA President Dennis Van Roekel and U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, NEA's "Teacher Thank-You Project" is a collection of thousands of thank-you cards artfully displayed on a larger-than-life mural measuring 8 feet tall and 75 feet wide.

The project is an unprecedented effort to collect thank-you messages for teachers around the world. Thousands of cards from celebrities, athletes, lawmakers, notable public figures, and individuals were compiled. To see a virtual version of the mural and view pictures, go to Teacher Thank-You Project.
