Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! Thank you for all that you do to cultivate positive learning communities, inspire the next generation, and support your students. We appreciate you and all of your efforts.

We are especially inspired by and appreciative of teachers this year during the coronavirus pandemic. As the world quickly shifted to online education, teachers adjusted their plans and teaching styles with ease. With little to no warning, teachers launched remote classrooms and began supporting their students from home. This is amazing, and this is worthy of celebration! Take a moment to pat yourself on the back for your hard efforts during this unprecedented time. 

To start these celebrations and bring light to the amazing teacher community, we are launching the #TeacherHero campaign. In addition, we are giving away some fun prizes for teachers during this #TeacherAppreciationWeek. Read on to participate, enter, and win!

#TeacherHero

In a time of uncertainty, community can be more important than ever. Take a moment to think about your colleagues and teacher friends and recognize someone who has been supportive, provided guidance, or gave a bit of cheer to lighten the day. Maybe your colleague inspired you or went the extra mile when creating online lessons or supporting students. Or perhaps a colleague has helped other teachers with instruction. Those actions make a difference, and it’s time to recognize those teacher heroes who are making these positive efforts that touch our lives!

No matter whether your #TeacherHero did something big or small, we want to hear about it and we want to celebrate! Head over to the social media platform of your choice (Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram), and share about a teacher who has inspired you using the hashtag #TeacherHero. 

When you share about your teacher hero, use the hashtag #TeacherHero, tag us @Edulastic and you will be entered into our Teacher Appreciation Week Giveaway (details below).
