Everyday teachers touch the lives of millions of children for their hard work and impact beyond the boundaries of the classroom. We’re so excited to celebrate these real life superheroes during National PTA’s Teacher Appreciation Week, May 2-6.
Teacher Appreciation Week is the perfect time to thank teachers for making the difference they make.
To help you plan for the week, we’ve created a Teacher Appreciation Week Promotional Toolkit with ideas and resources you can use to honor teachers:
- Send a thank you card
- Get ideas from our Pinterest board
- Download social media images
- Use our sample tweets
- Print our posters
We also encourage you to celebrate a special teacher in your life or a teacher of a child in your life. Tell them the impact they’ve had or what you’ve accomplished because of their influence. Use #ThankATeacher to join the conversation online.
Sometimes a simple thanks is all a teacher needs to feel valued. Share the toolkit with your PTAs and families.
Let’s make our teachers feel extra special this Teacher Appreciation Week because their incredible superpowers truly make a difference in children’s lives.
