#WorthIt: Teacher Appreciation Week 2016

It’s that time of year again: the one week when teachers get the appreciation you deserve year-round. At AdoptAClassroom.org, Teacher Appreciation Week (Beginning Monday, May 2) is our favorite time of year, because we get to celebrate our favorite people! Everyday we see the dedication and support you give your students, and this is our special chance to say thank you.

Check out how to get involved in the fun:
