Teacher Appreciation Week

Image Illustrating Teachers and Students

This past school year has been enormously challenging. But we’re getting through it, in part thanks to our amazing educators. Take a moment to #ThankATeacher and show how much #DoDEAAppreciates its teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week, May 2-6.

Teachers change the lives of millions of children every day—and in a year where instruction could be virtual, in-person or a mix of both, their immense work and impact have provided a much-needed sense of community and connection. Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, educators are working hard to ensure every student has the tools they need to reach their full potential.
