Teacher Appreciation Week: Resources and freebies to share!

May 7, 2015 Mark Christensen

We’re celebrating Teacher Appreciation all week and by the amazing tweets using #bbthankateacher you have too!

We kicked off the week by inviting you to Light up Twitter with Appreciation for Teachers and honor your favorite teacher by tweeting how he or she inspired you. Your sharing has been overwhelming and the response has offered some really moving tweets. Here are just a few, but make sure to check them all out at #bbthankateacher. If you haven’t shared yet, go ahead, you’ll be in good company.


Teachers give us so much. Although we know that we can never thank them enough, we’ve pulled together some great hyperlinked blog stories, infographics, and freebies for those amazing teachers in all our lives. This is our little way of saying thanks. So, check out all the great resources below and share them with a teacher you know!
