This week is Teacher Appreciation Week. We encourage our Home Page viewers to take a moment to thank the teachers who have influenced and impacted your lives. Using today’s technology and social media, we have the opportunity to thank more teachers than ever before. By including the hashtag phrase – #ThankATeacher – on social media websites – helps share this message globally. Handwritten personal notes can be the most treasured of all! Take a few moments to reflect on those special teachers in your life and then find a way to make it happen. Don’t put it off another year – just do it! Say, THANK YOU!
