After a year of creative solutions to virtually engage students and extra hours spent adjusting plans to ensure students can continue learning both in the classroom and online, give the teachers in your life the appreciation they deserve during Teacher Appreciation Week – May 4 – 8. In honor of the educators in our lives, we’re sharing a handful of ideas to thank teachers for their tireless efforts over the years.
Did you know on average, a teacher’s workday is over 10 hours – with it increasing if the teacher assists with extra-curricular activities? From gift baskets to handwritten letters, there are plenty of ways to show teachers, both past and present, you are thinking about them and cherish all that they do.
Share your favorite baked goods.
Whether your children are currently in school or you have several friends that are teachers, recognize your favorite teacher’s hard work and dedication to education with their favorite baked treat.
Reconnect with a past teacher.
Do you have a teacher that positively impacted your life? Take time to reconnect with them this year, whether it be through a handwritten letter, social media or a phone call! Reconnecting with your teachers is a great way to show your appreciation for all they did for you.
