Teacher Appreciation Week is fast approaching (May 4-8!) and one thing is for sure – the teachers in your life have faced new challenges in their job that their education never could have prepared them for! With a high school Senior and First Grader in the house, I’ve had the opportunity to see the work has gone into keeping these kids on track at both ends of the spectrum.

Teachers of high schoolers are working hard to prepare students for tests that will affect their college path. AP tests and college credit aren’t given away for free with the ending of in-person classes. And let’s not forget that with graduation up in the air, Seniors aren’t the only ones wondering if they’ll get the chance to say goodbye. The teachers are unsure of this too.

Teachers of younger students who were just on the cusp of mastering that hard skill that would help them thrive next school year are working diligently to keep the momentum going from afar. From elementary to high school, teachers are reworking their lesson plans to help their students succeed. If there was ever a year teachers need to feel appreciated, this is it.

So what do you do to help the teacher in your life feel appreciated when you aren’t stepping into the classroom? We’ve rounded up a few ideas, but we’d love to hear from you! Comment with what you’re doing for the teachers in your life and help this become as resourceful for all of us as possible!

Celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week – Social Distancing Style

  • Mail a handwritten letter from your student.
  • Send photos of your student learning, or better yet – using the skills their teacher taught them in a new creative way.
  • Have your student type an e-mail of appreciation.
  • Send an e-mail from you, mention all of the things you’ve noticed them doing to help your student succeed!
  • Schedule a video call for you and your student to catch up with their teacher.
  • Have your gift mailed this year. From gift cards to gift boxes we’ve got you covered!

Let’s just say, until we started working on this post, I had no idea that there were different pillows for different sleep positions. I figured it was a one-size fits all approach, maybe just a preference of firm or soft! Well, needless to say, I was way off. I also learned that over 70% of […]
