Pick a day to celebrate Teacher's Day. Say or write "Happy Teacher's Day" in Chinese to your Chinese teacher or tai chi instructor to show your respect and appreciation.

In the United States, Teacher's Day is a non-official holiday celebrated on the first Tuesday in May. The National Education Association (NEA) describes National Teacher Day as "a day for honoring teachers and recognizing the lasting contributions they make to our lives."

In China, Teacher's Day is celebrated on September 10. It is one of three holidays established for professionals. The other two are for nurses and news reporters.

In Taiwan, Teacher's Day is celebrated on September 28. This date was chosen to commemorate the birth of Confucius, the master educator of ancient China.
