Teachers don’t always get the recognition they deserve. They take care of and educate our kids, work long hours often for little pay and have been known to reach into their own pockets to help a student or improve their classroom.
While educators should get accolades year-round, National Teacher Appreciation Week (the first full week of May) and Teacher Appreciation Day (the first Tuesday in May) are the official times to offer words of thanks and gifts to our nation’s teaching staff. Local and national businesses join the teacher fan club by offering Teacher Appreciation Week deals and freebies every year.
We’ll update this post as we find out what’s available, so check back frequently.
Retailers, restaurants, even vacation providers all give teachers a little something extra during the first full week of May. Teachers, we hope you treat yourself to something nice. Parents and students, make sure your teachers know about all the discounts and free stuff available to them. And be sure to review our list of discounts for teachers available all year long.
