It's Time to #ThankATeacher

Categories: Education & Teaching

Teacher's have the power to dramatically affect a person's outlook, self-esteem, and dreams. For children who have print disabilities, a champion teacher is oftentimes a pivotal part of their lives. It's time to #ThankATeacher! May 2-6, 2016 is National Teacher Appreciation Week! Learning Ally is joining in the movement with the National Education Association and the national Parent and Teacher Association to thank teachers everywhere. How do you join in? It's simple: 
  • On your personal social media, post a photo or a video describing the teacher you wish to thank, and why!
  • In your post, use the hashtag #ThankATeacher
  • We want to share in your fun! Make sure to tag Learning Ally in your post. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. To tag us, simply type "@Learning Ally." In order for us to see it, your post will need to be set to "public."
  • You can also donate a gift to Learning Ally, a national non-profit, in honor of your teacher. Simply go to this link, select the amount you would like to donate, click "dedicate my donation in honor or in memory of someone," select an e-card design for your teacher, and we'll do the rest.
