Join AACTE in Thanking Teachers During National Teacher Appreciation Week 2021
Teacher Appreciation Week: May 3-7, 2021
Each year, the National Parent Teacher Association (PTA), in partnership with Office Depot and Office Max, celebrates educators. The theme, #ThankATeacher, invites all Americans to take time to honor the service teachers provide. Now more than ever, it is critical to recognize the difficult and sometimes at-risk work teachers face in the classroom during the health pandemic. Schools across the country face teacher shortages so this week’s celebration conveys an important message that teachers matter.This year’s #ThankATeacher activities include collecting imagery for scrapbooking to encourage students and parents to remember all the good from educators this year. The National PTA asks participants to share on social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, hashtags and resources from the toolkit available on their website. All of the resources within the toolkit are available in English and Spanish.
- Thank You Cards
- Virtual Stickers
- Social Media graphics
National PTA recommends other ways to celebrate our teachers: Email heartfelt letters, cards and messages of appreciation, create artwork, poems and video messages to celebrate teachers, and send your teacher a virtual award.Don’t forget on Thursday, May 6, to upload a #TBT of you and your favorite teacher and thank them using the hashtag #ThankATeacher.
