The Best of Teacher Appreciation Week

As you know, Elevate Teachers is all about showing support and respect for our teachers, and Teacher Appreciation Week is a great start. To inspire everyone to give teachers the recognition they deserve, we pulled together a list of the best celebrations we saw during Teacher Appreciation Week. Let’s keep this going all year!

Locally: An Indianapolis Half Price Books took donations of children’s books throughout the year.  On Teacher Appreciation Day, they let area teachers have them for free.

Blackboard opened nominations to give a teacher the chance to win a $1,000 classroom grant.

The U.S. Department of Education had students to write a thank you note to their favorite teacher, and shared a video of the teachers reading the notes.

Spotify created a playlist called #ThankaTeacher and invited social media followers to share a tribute to their teacher using the hashtag.

Chevrolet asked kids about their favorite teachers, and what they would do to appreciate them if they could.
