Tuesday, May 3, is National Teacher Appreciation Day, which makes this week Teacher Appreciation Week! Teachers are such an important part of our communities.

And teaching is far from easy work, requiring long hours and dedication to ensure our young people gain the knowledge they need to succeed. So here’s to you, teachers!
