Teacher Appreciation Week is May 8-12, 2017. This year’s theme is “Teachers Deliver.” And they do! Teachers deliver so much to our students: inspiration, motivation, and ultimately, their futures. Teacher Appreciation Week is a great opportunity, to celebrate teachers and deliver our thanks and gratitude to them.
Teachers change the lives of millions of children every day, and their work and impact extends far beyond the boundaries of the classroom. #ThankATeacher for all that they deliver to our nation’s children.
HOW YOU CAN #THANKATEACHER
Take the time to show your appreciation this week. Promotional Event Toolkit sample social media messaging, images to use on Facebook and Twitter, color fliers and more!
Here are a few more ways you can get involved:
