In only a couple of weeks, May 7-11, Teacher Appreciation Week will be celebrated at schools across the country. It is an opportunity to say “Thank You” to teachers, staff, and volunteers for the work they do all year long. Whether educating children or adults, from elementary school to secondary to graduate programs, teachers show commitment, patience and caring to their students to ensure they receive the best education available to them. It is important to take time to thank teachers and educators, so they know that they are appreciated and the work they do matters. Do something meaningful and special that they will remember, such as sponsoring a light breakfast with coffee, tea, and fruit or offering a gift of something they can enjoy in their personal time, such as golf or gardening. It doesn’t take much, but a simple “thank you” can mean the world and shows that you recognize the talent it takes to guide our leaders of tomorrow.
