“National Teacher Day encourages communities nationwide to take time to honor their local educators and acknowledge the crucial role they play in making sure each and every student receives a quality education”, stated Jacqueline V.

The mission of the International Spy Museum is to educate the public about espionage in an engaging way and to provide a context that fosters understanding of its important role in and impact on current and historic events. Using espionage as a lens to view traditional curriculum, the Museum provides unique programs and resources for educators. Professional development workshops, curriculum publications, an annual Educator Open House scheduled on September 30th, 2012, and participation in National Teacher Day are just a few of the many ways the Spy Museum supports classroom teachers.
