Teacher Appreciation Week, May 6 – 10, 2013

by: 
Carol, Evergreen Library

Are you ready to show how grateful you are to your current (or former) teacher?  It’s not too late!  This week is Teacher Appreciation Week and these hard working, caring and creative people will love being remembered by you all week long.

The library has many children’s biographies on famous teachers – Annie Sullivan, Christa McAuliffe, Colorado’s own Emily Griffith, and Booker T. Washington to name just a few.

There are also many titles about becoming a teacher in our education section, the 371’s and 372’s.

Visit Pinterest or some nifty gift ideas for your favorite teachers.

And, visit the National Education Association's website for more ways to celebrate and support teachers!

Can you name your favorite teacher ever?  Mine was Mr. Beal, my 6th grade teacher who started me reading many wonderful biographies.  Add your favorite to this blog.
