How should we show our appreciation to school employees?

Teacher Appreciation Week is May 4-11 when teachers and all school employees are recognized for their contributions to public education. Last week, we asked for your suggestions on how best students, parents, the community and the media can show their appreciation for all that you do.

We’ve gotten many responses and we’ll publish them during Teacher Appreciation Week.

Please send us your ideas and suggestions. We also need your name, school district and the position you hold (second grade teacher, high school math teacher, custodian, etc.) in order to print your response. Send the information to MEA Editor, Rosemary Carey, at
