It’s Teacher Appreciation Week! And Here Are the Top Grants for Educators

Teachers have one of the most important jobs in the world. Not only are they directly responsible for shaping the minds of today’s youth, but they also give students the confidence and the social skills they need to succeed. Without teachers, students wouldn’t have the resources they need to learn about the world around them. However, many teachers are underpaid and underappreciated or do not have the funding they need to do this work to the best of their ability. In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week which starts on May 2, we are reminding people to thank any teachers in their lives for the important work they do.

Some Ways to Recognize Teacher Appreciation Week

  1. Donate new or gently used books to a teacher’s classroom.
  2. Record a video of your child saying thank you to their teacher and email it to them.
  3. Send your teacher a gift card for food or classroom supplies.
  4. Have your child make a list of the top five favorite things they learned in class this year.
  5. Volunteer at your local school.
