This week is Teacher Appreciation Week! Each year, we designate one week during the first full week of May to show gratitude for our outstanding teachers all over the world. Many reward the teacher of their choice with a present or a letter of gratitude. Education Secretary Arne Duncan has even published his thoughts on teachers everywhere in an An Open Letter From Arne Duncan to America’s Teachers
So we encourage you take a moment to express your gratitude to a teacher who has made a difference to you or to someone you love. Here are some of our favorite Teacher Appreciation Quotes. What are yours?
