I recently read an article from Edutopia News about Teacher Appreciation Month. It can be viewed at Celebrate Educators on National Teacher Day 2013 | Edutopia. Until moving to Pennsylvania, I had not heard of Teacher Appreciation Month. Teacher Appreciation Month is in May, and this article by Blogger Matt Davis shares some great resources to celebrate National Teacher Day.
How does your school celebrate Teacher Appreciation Month? The schools I substituted in used to have a lunch of pizza or sandwiches sometime in May. This was probably done on May 7 to celebrate National Teacher Day.
In my children's school, we dedicate all next week to our teachers and staff. Each day the teachers' lounge is set up with a breakfast or lunch buffet and of course desserts. As the room parent for my son's second grade class, we are planning on celebrating their teacher each day of the week with a special note and surprise from each student. For example one day their note will be why their teacher is sweet along with one of her favorite candy bars or cookies. It's quite a week long event each year.
