We're getting ready for Teacher Appreciation week (Monday, May 3, 2021 – through Friday , May 7, 2021) and thought we'd share these fun teacher printables for your kids to personalize. Yes, I know it's not been easy on parents to come up with remote school support, but many teachers have been putting in unbelievable efforts to make this year work. For them, I have nothing but love.

Why Teachers Deserve Our Gratitude

The stress on teachers this year is all too real. Many of them are having a crisis moment in their careers (check out this New York Times article). Now is the time to put your gratitude practice into work. 

Here's something else to consider: Teachers get paid nearly 21% less on average than other professions that require a college degree. The independent research group Learning Policy Institute estimated a 112,000 teacher shortage in 2018. Part of the reason many rejected the education field was due to low pay.

Teacher Appreciation Week is celebrated during the first full week of May each year. National Teacher Day, it falls on the Tuesday of Teacher Appreciation Week—May 4, 2021. Normally, we'd drop off a Starbucks card, or some Dunkin goodies and a sweet card, this year, we'll be mailing off our love.
