#ThankATeacher During Teacher Appreciation Week!

It’s Teacher Appreciation Week!

Great teaching can inspire and affect the lives of students — and we wanted to share a few of those sentiments with you!

We asked students of all ages to give us their thoughts about their favorite teachers:








While we all agree teachers deserve a special day and week, the U.S. Department of Education wants to honor educators year-round.

Download your own graphic and tell us why you want to thank a teacher! Then share on social media using #ThankATeacher and help us spotlight great teachers across the country. Follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook for more. And get more inspiring info about teachers who are leading from the classroom through Teach to Lead.
