Teachers Deserve to Be Appreciated

Teachers provide, educate and engage with their students. The relationship is normally focused on the student, as that is the job of an educator. 

Teacher Appreciation Week runs from Monday, May 3 until  Fri, May 7.

In some classrooms, students will give their teachers presents or letters in order to show their gratitude. Sometimes, a simple “Thank you” goes further than a student might expect.

Educators are in charge of all the future generations, they are teaching us to prepare for the future. Their role is so important and they deserve appreciation, and they deserve it all year round.
