How to Honor Teachers: Let Me Count the Ways

"I am indebted to my father for living, but to my teacher for living well."
-- Alexander the Great

It's that time of year again: Teacher Appreciation Week!  Personally, I think people should thank teachers all year long for what they do but it's also real nice when companies give educators a special shout out.

If you are looking for some flyers or images to advertise Teacher Appreciation Week in your school or community, the National PTA has an Event Toolkit with lots of materials available on their website.  What's real nice is that they are in Spanish as well as English.

Educators enjoy some free offers by various companies and organizations during Teacher Appreciation Week 2017!
