Teacher Appreciation Week kicks off today and some restaurants are taking time to honor our educators with free meals, buy-one-get-one free deals and discounts. The biggest discount day is Tuesday which is National Teacher Appreciation Day.
Teachers change the lives of millions of children every day, and their work and impact extends far beyond the boundaries of the classroom. They play a pivotal role in our children’s lives, inspiring a lifelong love of learning and discovery and making a difference in their well-being and long-term success.
