Free Content for Teacher Appreciation

Teacher Appreciation Week runs from May 6 to 10, 2024. Teachers play a pivotal role in society for shaping young minds and preparing students to be successful when entering the real world. A week is not enough to truly show our deep appreciation for educators of all kinds. We choose to celebrate this year’s Teacher Appreciation Week by encouraging students to share their favorite story of a teacher who had impacted their life. Use #ThankATeacher on social media, along with the teacher or teachers you want to thank.

There is a teacher shortage in over 75% of states. Because of this, it’s important to appreciate the teachers we have more than ever, and to encourage others to participate in this valued and essential profession.
