Help us Celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week!

For Teacher Appreciation Week this year, we want to celebrate our educators by sharing the stories of how they came to lead our classrooms – and inspire the next generation to join them there.

From May 7-11, 2018, we will use the #TeachTodayTN campaign to showcase the inspirational stories behind why our teachers chose the education profession and what motivates them to continually serve our students every day.

And we’re asking you to participate.

We are collecting stories from educators like you to share on social media during Teacher Appreciation Week. To participate, email Educator.Communications@tn.gov and share the story behind why you teach – whether that’s why you first started teaching or why you keep at it every day. You can also share why you’re encouraging the next generation to be a teacher. You can write as much or as little as you would like – and please share a photo of your class or your students!

Or, if you’d rather wait until Teacher Appreciation Week, you can use the #TeachTodayTN hashtag to share your story on Twitter or Facebook.

We know that every educator has a story to tell. Thanks for helping us share yours.
