“Every day teachers around the country go above and beyond the call of duty to support students. The disheartening results from the recently released MetLife Survey of the American Teacher showing a 23% drop in teachers’ job satisfaction – the lowest it has been since 1987- are an indication that we need to stop and thank the educators around us,” said Promethean North American President Rob Goldberg. “During Teacher Appreciation Week, please remember to take the time to acknowledge teachers’ commitment to preparing tomorrow’s leaders.”
Nominate a deserving educator by submitting a 50-75 word essay that describes why the educator should be honored and why you are thankful for having this teacher in your life or at your school. Send the essay, along with a photo and the educator’s complete contact information by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations will only be accepted by email. Go to the Thank a Teacher Facebook page for additional details and the Official Contest Rules.
