Find Out What Teachers Really Make + Thank a Teacher Today
We just want to say Thank You to all the teachers out there in the Concho Valley, around the nation, and around the world who make sacrifices for the children they choose to teach. That's right. They make a choice to work long hours, make less than they deserve, and to undeniably change the lives of their students.
We found the video above, and we won't lie, there were a couple of tears during the viewing. It made us think about how much our own teachers affected our lives in some way growing up. Take a moment today to thank a teacher for all their hard work and dedication.
If you have an extra moment, share 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 on your Facebook page. Use the hashtag #ThankATeacher and you could win your favorite teacher a $100 Visa gift card!
Giveaway is conducted by the National Education Association, 1201 16th St. NW, Washington, DC 20036. Winners will announced and posted on the NEA website on Monday, May 11, 2015.
