12,631 Thank-Yous! — Happy National ESPs Day

The Ohio Education Association is extending a hearty thank-you to each of our 12,631¹ Education Support Professionals (ESPs) in recognition of National 2018 Education Support Professionals Day.

Observed annually, National ESP Day honors the contributions of school support employees.

These support professionals provide invaluable services and are essential partners in the children’s education process.

National ESP Day honors the work of school secretaries, classroom aides, cafeteria workers, maintenance workers, bus drivers and the others that help and do their part in making public schools great for every child so that they can be safe, learn, grow and achieve.

About American Education Week
National ESP Day is part of the NEA’s 97th annual American Education Week celebration, November 12-16, 2018. National ESP Day is observed on Wednesday of American Education Week. Celebrated the week prior to Thanksgiving, American Education Week began in 1921 with the NEA and the American Legion as cosponsors. The goal was to generate public awareness and support for education because of concerns over illiteracy. A year later, the U.S. Office of Education signed on, and the PTA followed in 1938. | #WeLoveOurESP | #AEW2018
