At schools, teachers are showered with handmade presents, cards, poetry, and artwork. Students take part in singing and theatrical performances to show their appreciation on the day. Class parties are organized for professors and teaching staff at universities and colleges.

    Teachers’ Day is an official observance and not a federal public holiday in Mexico.

    About Teachers’ Day

    Mexico’s first Teachers’ Day was celebrated on May 15, 1918. There are 2 possible reasons for the choice of this date. Firstly, it is the date when the Mexican army, which supported President Benito Juarez, seized the city of Querétaro in central Mexico on May 15, 1867. Secondly, it is believed that students gathered to celebrate the birthday of a teacher named after Saint Isidore the Laborer who died on May 15.
