Thank A Teacher

This year, Teacher Appreciation Week is May 8 through May 12 and the theme is “Teachers Deliver.” And they do. Teachers deliver so much to students, including inspiration, motivation and ultimately, their futures. Take time to celebrate teachers and deliver 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.

The national organization Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) is promoting the hashtag #ThankATeacher, for all that they deliver to our nation’s children.

How Can You Thank A Teacher?

• Have your child sign and present ready-made thank you cards to their teachers.

• Have your school principal, PTA president or student sign and present appreciation certificates to the teachers in your life.

• Share photos and your activities during the week by using the hashtag #ThankATeacher on social media.

• On Thursday, May 11, upload a “throw-back Thursday photo” (hashtag #TBT) of you and your favorite teacher and thank them using the official hashtag #ThankATeacher.
Since 1984, PTA has designated one week in May as a special time to honor the men and women who lend their passion and skills to educating our children.
