How to support educators for teacher appreciation week

It’s Teacher Appreciation Week!
Let’s Think Outside the Box This Year

National Teacher Appreciation Week kicks off today. While we can all agree that every week is a good time to show our appreciation, we know many parents, schools and students use this time to make special gestures.

We started asking ourselves, do teachers need more coffee mugs or gift cards? What’s the most meaningful gesture the community can make? It’s hard to say, unless you’re a teacher yourself. So, we asked a handful of teachers to tell us what they really want for Teacher Appreciation Week. Some of their answers may surprise you. Read our blog to find out what they had to say!

And while you are deciding how to show your appreciation to the educators in your life, don’t forget about all the other school support staff who help ensure everything runs smoothly every day, as well as early learning and child care centers and higher education faculty members.
