Never have our teachers been more appreciated as parents have had a glimpse into their job thanks to distance learning. For Teacher Appreciation, we’ve gathered FREE printables, items and activities that you and your students can use to celebrate teachers all month long. We want to recognize everything teachers did before the pandemic and all they are doing now to keep our students learning. Please share these resources on your own social media channels (use #publicschoolsstrong and #thankateacher) so that others may celebrate teachers with us!
