Each year during Teacher Appreciation Week, we encourage everyone to #ThankATeacher because educators truly deserve the gratitude of the communities they serve. However, with educators planning to leave the profession in record numbers, it’s clear that gratitude and gifts are not enough.
This year, in addition to the mugs, gift cards, special lunches and breakfasts, we are saying, loud and clear—we want RESPECT and we want to be heard, appreciated, and compensated as trained professionals.
More students, parents and communities than ever before are coming together to say thank you by texting CELEBRATE to 48744 and posting on social media using the hashtag #thankateacher. Please consider joining them, and posting your thoughts about what you truly want this Teacher Appreciation Week using the #thankateacher hashtag.
Thank you for everything you do all year for your students and for making your voice heard today!
