One of our favorite weeks of the year has arrived! May 7-11, 2018 marks National Teacher Appreciation Week (including National Teacher Day on Tuesday the 8th). Businesses and communities throughout the US are showing some well-deserved appreciation by offering some exciting deals and freebies to teachers! We've found that many of these promotions are open to substitutes as well, when you show your employee ID.
Here's a long list of teacher appreciation deals – please note that promotions vary by location, and you may want to do a bit of investigating to find offers that are local to you!
The NEA and National PTA are also running a #ThankATeacher social media campaign. Both organizations have free printable templates on their websites which you can download, print, and fill out with a personal reason why you'd like to thank a teacher who had an impact on your life. Then take a photo with your sign and share it to social media with #ThankATeacher to spread some love to the selfless individuals who always give so much!
