Every year, we celebrate teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week and Teacher Appreciation Day for all that they do for our kids all year long. This year is no different but perhaps requires more attention after such a challenging year of trying to do virtual or hybrid school. Teachers rose to the challenge and did their best in trying to continue a learning environment that benefits for our kids. It was hard for them as it was for our kids, but teachers did not give up and kept working to achieve their learning goals. For this, we are so thankful to them here in Memphis and across the country. This year, Teacher Appreciation Week is May 3rd through May 7th, and Teacher Appreciation Day is May 4th.
