Bonus Tip: Show Your Appreciation EVERY Day

To wrap up Teacher Appreciation Month, we asked teachers in our community, "How do you feel when someone shows gratitude for the work you do as an educator?" The answers we received were humbling and inspiring. We hope that the tips provided here give you ideas to help make teachers feel valued, loved, grateful, and appreciated not only during Teacher Appreciation Month, but 365 days a year.

"Every Day in May"

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

Do you want to share a recommendation for how best to show your gratitude to an educator? Post a comment with your tip below -- we'll feature the most popular ones (that is, comments with the most likes) on and in our newsletter.
