Teacher Appreciation Week is May 8th to 12th and
May 10th is California Day of the Teacher
Teachers occupy an outsized place in our modern conscience. They teach us, yes, but more importantly, they teach us how to learn — how to become educators ourselves. At ING, we celebrate the educators in our personal and professional lives because they are an integral part of creating a healthy, peaceful society. We tailor our educational products to them, because they know what is best.
Teacher Appreciation Week is May 8th to 12th this year, with May 10th being California Day of the Teacher. Take some time to thank the teachers who have changed your life, especially if they’ve helped you change the lives of others, too. The California PTA has a list of easy “appreciation tips” to help you.
