Teacher Appreciation Week 2007
For the past 15 years, communities across the United States have set aside the first full week of May as Teacher Appreciation Week
, with the first Tuesday being the National Teacher Appreciation Day
. During this special week, students surprise their teachers with well-deserved thanks.
May 6 - May 12
will be Teacher Appreciation Week 2007
. Take special care of your teachers this week, and surprise them with a gift on National Teacher Appreciation Day, May 8, 2007.
Teachers agree that good teaching is their own reward, but Teacher Appreciation Week 2007 is a great time to let teachers know how they have touched your or your kids' lives.
There are many ways to show appreciation for your teachers, for example:
- Find former students of your school and encourage them to say a few things about the teacher who made a particular difference.
- Find someone in the local area willing to speak at your school about the history of education. You might check with historians or education professors at a nearby college. Have lecturers highlight the people whose contributions have meant the most to the teaching profession.
- Give your teachers a little present every day during Teacher Appreciation Week, for example a chocolate, and add a little poem to make it extra special.
So donít forget about National Teacher Appreciation Day on May 8, 2007
and make that extra effort for your special teacher!
