Do you have a teacher who changed your life or inspired you to be more? I had quite a few and who knows who I’d be without them. I even had the privilege of being a teacher for a few years when learned just what a labor of love it is to teach. Those kids changed my life just as much, if not more, than I changed theirs. Today is National Teacher Appreciation Day, the one day a year dedicated to thanking these selfless people who raised us and raise our children. They deserve some love with all they put up with!

Tell us your story about your favorite teacher below and share this image to celebrate the educators who put their students first and give the world a brighter future because of it. Cheers to them!


We have found quite a few gifts for teachers┬áthat will help you honor your children’s teachers this year whether it’s Teacher’s Day or the end of the school year. There’s never an inappropriate time to show a teacher that they are appreciated.
