It’s time to show our appreciation for New York City’s teachers!

This week (May 2–6, 2022), NYC public schools are celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week, the Department of Education’s annual tribute to the 79,000 educators who help guide the learning and growth of City students every day.

All week long, our students, parents, and community members will be showing their appreciation for their favorite City teachers—and now you can, too, with our official DOE All Stars web tool!

Simply sign in as a guest on DOE All Stars between now and May 6, and type in the name of the educator you would like to send a thank you note to this week—then select your preferred messages, hit “Send,” and BOOM, you’re done!

You can also show your appreciation for your favorite teachers on social media! Use the hashtag, #ThankATeacherNYC, to tell the world how you feel about the City public school teachers who have truly made a difference in your life.

And this year, you can also use DOE All Stars to nominate your favorite teachers for a 2022-23 Big Apple Award, the NYC Department of Education’s annual recognition and celebration of City teachers who model great instruction, inspire their students, and enrich their school communities!

To learn more about Teacher Appreciation Week, visit our official Teacher Appreciation Week 2022 webpage, and consider joining us as we thank them all for their dedication to our students, families, and school communities.

On behalf of the NYC DOE, we wish all of our educators a wonderful Teacher Appreciation Week—thank you for coming through for us and our families time and time again.
