Yes that is this week

In the United States the week between May 2 and May 6 of 2022 is Teacher Appreciation week. There are all kinds of ways that we can thank teachers. We can send the teachers gifts, have parades for them, donate money to their campaigns online just a thank you can go a very long way.

Teachers are a huge part of what shapes children into adults. Odds are high that children will spend more time with their teachers than their parents and yet teachers are not treated as well as their counter parts. Teachers are paid less and expected to do more than others with the same education and experience levels. On average teachers are paid 11% less than their counter parts, when benefits are factored in the average went down by 8% however with new legislation teachers benefits have seen substantial cuts and this 8% number is most likely not correct.

We can and should show our appreciation for our teachers this week and more importantly on election day. Vote for a person that will pay teachers fairly and values teachers and our children.

Teaching is the one profession that creates all the other professions.
