Getting ready to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week? We’ve got a template full of ideas to help honor and celebrate your faculty.

Teacher Appreciation Week is around the corner & we’ve got a school newsletter template to help you celebrate!

Communicating appreciation is always important, but especially for folks in helping professions. So, we’ve got one article that details a range of ideas for how managers can express appreciation for their team members, and a second with a wide variety of suggestions for your PTO. In the middle of those two links, we’ve got some 🙌 photos & a funny poem for teachers.

Next up: one of our own blog posts with tips for using your weekly faculty newsletter to recognize your teachers’ efforts.

Honoring the teachers who changed our lives

We all have one! Next up: a video interview with Dr. John Ewing, President of @mathforamerica, a professional learning fellowship for STEM teachers, who talks with Smore Resident Educator @sternkara about the importance of respecting teachers. This is followed by a great blog post with 14 ways to say thank you to teachers.

Lastly, we’ve got a link for easy homemade gifts that teachers will love.

Let’s hear from teachers themselves!

This tweet thread (which is not in the template) is a good read for what teachers say will help them feel appreciated.
