Teacher Appreciation 2022

The late, beloved Robin Smith's rocking chair.

This week marks Teacher Appreciation Week, with today, Tuesday, May 3, being National Teacher Day. Please #ThankaTeacher — including teacher librarians, if your district is lucky enough to have them — and remember the extreme difficulties, unique challenges, and seeming near-impossibilities that our educators have been facing throughout the pandemic and continuing today. #EducatorswithSuperpowers #EducatorsAreExperts #TrustTeachers

Follow our “school stories” and "teachers" tags for more teacher appreciations; read Dean Schneider's March/April 2022 Horn Book Magazine article "Teaching Flying Lessons & Other Stories"; and visit Lolly's Classroom for more by and about teachers using trade books in the classroom.
