It’s time to show our appreciation for New York City’s teachers!
From May 7–11, NYC schools will celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, the DOE’s annual tribute to the educators who help guide the learning and growth of the City’s 1.1 million students every day.
Throughout the week, City schools will be holding events and celebrations in honor of the City’s 79,000 teachers. To join in on the celebration, we encourage students, parents, teachers, and other DOE staff members to:
- Use the DOE’s Thank You Tool to send customized appreciation emails to any NYC public school teachers between now and Friday, May 11;
- Send simple ‘Thank You’ messages to teachers via email, handwritten notes, or SMS texts; and
- Tell the world how you feel about your favorite teachers on social media by using the hashtag, #ThankaTeacherNYC! Download and use one of our speech bubbles for special Teacher Appreciation Week-themed photos on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and other social media outlets.
We are grateful to the City’s teachers for all that they do to guide, motivate, and support New York’s students. Let us all show our teachers just how much we appreciate their work all week long starting on Monday, May 7!
