Teacher Appreciation Week May 3-7th 2021

Teachers play a critical role in educating and shaping the lives of children: the future leaders of our country. They are kind, patient, hard-working, dedicated, and understanding professionals who help mold our children and guide them in positive directions.




This Teacher Appreciation Week, help recognize and celebrate great teachers at your school by inviting students and parents to submit nominations for the national Honored award. Each month, one Honoree receives a $5,000 award, a $1,000 gift card to DonorsChoose.org, and is profiled by a world-class writer.




Encourage your community to submit nominations at www.honored.org/nominate.
