Why limit your appreciation of great teachers to your own neighborhood? You can learn about teachers across the globe by checking out our "Education Everywhere" video series, which profiles high-achieving international education systems and model schools. You can even get involved by supporting a school in another country -- read "How to Help an International School: Give the Gift of Books -- and More" for some great ideas.
Every day in May we'll be offering up a new way to appreciate teachers.
