During such a difficult and unprecedented school year, now is the time to take a moment to say a big "thank you" to the special teacher who has made a difference in a child's life.
May 3-7 marks Teacher Appreciation Week. Since 1984, the National PTA has designated one week in May as a special time to honor the men and women who lend their passion and skills to educating children.
"Teachers change the lives of millions of children every day, and in a year where instruction could be virtual, in-person or a mix of both, their immense work and impact have provided a much-needed sense of community and connection," the organization says. "Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, educators across America are working hard to ensure every student has the tools they need to reach their full potential."
