Happy Teacher Appreciation Day!
The soul of a teacher is truly something special. It combines smarts and heart, passion and compassion, nurturing and instructing. It requires equal parts patience and insistence. Sometimes disciplinarian, sometimes ringleader of silliness—but always in it for the kids.
Whether you're a new teacher, a seasoned pro, or an aspiring teacher dreaming of one day having your own classroom, if education is in your soul, this week—and, particularly, today—we are all about you. National Teacher Appreciation Week is May 2–6 this year, and today, May 3, is Teacher Appreciation Day. While every day presents a new opportunity to thank the educators of the next generation, we're celebrating your commitment and selflessness extra hard this week.
We want to #ThankATeacher by giving stuff away!
In the comments below, tell us about the moment you realized teaching was in your soul. On Friday, May 6, we'll wrap up Teacher Appreciation Week by selecting five commenters to win a $50 gift code to the WGU Online Store!
Thanks, teachers, for all that you do!
