Teachers educate, inspire and transform their students’ lives each and every day. So for all of the time that they spend teaching, lesson planning, and nurturing their students, we want to say, “Thank You!”

But we can’t do this alone.

We are asking that you help us celebrate all of the amazing Chicago teachers that help make our city great. Along with the National Education Association (NEA) and the National Parent and Teacher Association (PTA), we are celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week the week of May 8-12 and we hope you will join us to #thankateacher. 

We have put together this social media toolkit [spanish version] for you to celebrate the teachers who have made an impact on your life and your child’s life. We made avatars, shareable graphics for social media and ideas for how you can join in the celebration.

We hope you can help us lift up all of the wonderful educators across Chicago. We look forward to celebrating all of the amazing work they do and the impact that they have beyond the classroom. After all, teaching is the profession that creates all others, and that is something we can all celebrate.
