Tip #12: Support Teachers Around the World

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"

Every day in May we'll be offering up a new way to appreciate teachers.
