Celebrate Teacher Appreciation Day

May 7th, 2013

Teaching is one of the most difficult jobs, but we rarely take the time to acknowledge the great teachers in our lives. Today, we have the chance to honor our teachers with Teacher Appreciation Day! It’s easy to join the celebration: The National Educators Association has some great cover photos you can use to share your thanks on Facebook. You can also express your gratitude on Twitter with the hashtag #thankateacher

Looking for some stories of inspiring teachers? We suggest Mary Antin’s remembrance of her school days after arriving in America from Russia or Langston Hughes’ story of an art teacher who helps her talented pupil fight racial discrimination. What are some of your favorite stories about teachers?
