Teacher Appreciation week runs from May 5th – 9th. This is the time of year to thank teachers for all of the hard work they do. So often they purchase their own supplies and spend their free time helping kids learn and grow. They do so much more than just teach — the mentor, they console, they discipline — they really care about our children.
If you are looking for some unique ways to say Thank You, you can check out the Teacher Appreciation Git Idea List we shared this past year as well as these new ideas we found below. Whether you make something at home, or send them a card, just try to remember to thank them for what they do!
