It’s Teacher Appreciation week! Well, it’s actually two weeks. It started Monday, May 1st and lasts through Friday, May 12th. Can you remember that special teacher, the one that helped you overcome, inspired, encouraged, the one who made learning fun. There were probably several! It’s time to love on a teacher! Gift cards or a homemade craft by your child are thoughtful ideas. A handmade note from your child would be a treasure! Share pictures of how you appreciated a teacher and use the hashtag #ThankATeacher on social media!
