As educators, you have always been innovators, finding creative ways to bring the real world into classrooms, digitally or in-person, and helping students expand their horizons in ways others might have thought impossible. You have been steadfast—an anchor for students, supporting their academic and social-emotional learning. And through all the uncertainty that has come with COVID-19, you have embraced ways to spread kindness and promote well-being throughout your school and educator communities.

This Teacher Appreciation Week—and every week—our heartfelt thanks goes out to educators like you who dream big on behalf of their students. You have modeled determination and resilience, especially during a school year requiring quick shifts that no one could have predicted.

Written words alone can’t express how grateful we or your students are, so we made this video together to show you.
