Celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week
May 2–6, 2016
Educators have been and always will be at the core of what we do. There is seemingly no end to the classroom innovation. New school models, new classroom layouts, new technology arrays, new platforms, processes and resources — and through it all they teach.
We recognize their everlasting contribution and impact to our lives. In celebration of PTA Teacher Appreciation Week, here are some of our favorite reminders of the impact teachers have and resources for you to show your support and encouragement. We encourage you to stay connected and share in the conversation this week by using #ThankATeacher and #TeacherAppreciationWeek hashtags.
We believe that the true center of learning is not located in the brain. It is found in the heart. Follow and share in the conversation of the Art of Teaching as we hear from teachers about why they teach.
Write a note to a teacher that has made an impact on your life. Thank-A-Teacher.org provides a platform for you to write a thank you note and they’ll take care of sending it to the school.
