Teachers give us so much. A boost of confidence when we really need one. Extra help when we're having trouble. A welcoming presence when everything else seems out of control.

And though we know we can't ever thank them enough, we can take a moment during National Teacher Appreciation Week to share our appreciation for the special educators in our lives.

Join NYSUT, NEA and the National PTA in saying "Thank You" by sharing one of the following on social media during Teacher Appreciation Week, May 2-6:

  • A picture of yourself with your favorite teacher, past or present;
  • A picture of your child with his or her teacher;
  • A picture of yourself holding a piece of paper with a simple message saying "Thank You" to a teacher and why you're thanking him or her.

Be sure to use the hashtag #ThankATeacher when sharing.
