May is the month when teachers often feel simultaneously frazzled and fulfilled. At the start of May, Teacher Appreciation Week gives us a moment to remind teachers how much we value you.

Sarah's Notes

One of my favorite principals celebrated the Friday before spring break by leaving a personal note on every teacher's desk. I kept thinking how neat it would have been to secretly position a video camera to capture each teacher's reaction. In a profession where teachers often feel unseen, I can imagine the video footage would have been priceless. As we get ready to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, perhaps you'll be thinking about how to appreciate or lift up those teachers who inspire you.

Here at Teaching Channel, we’re getting ready to embark on a special week of recognition. We’re encouraging you to leave, send or share a note of appreciation. Then, let's continue the tribute by posting it on Twitter with our favorite #TeachersRock hashtag. Not only that, but we’re also coordinating with our friends at #LoveTeaching to keep this celebration going. It’s as easy as write, snap and share. Write your note. Snap a photo. Share it out with #TeachersRock and #LoveTeaching. Let’s see just how much teacher appreciation we can spread.

And just so you know how doable this is, here's an example for that note-leaving principal.

Enjoy!
