Teacher appreciation

Teachers rarely get the thanks they deserve. It’s fairly common for many teachers to work second jobs or supplement their classroom supplies with money out of their own pocket, yet these acts of selflessness often go unrecognized. Luckily for DFW-area teachers, there’s Teacher Appreciation Week.

This May 7 is National Teacher Day, and from May 6 through May 10, DFW businesses will be honoring teachers with a number of freebies and discounts meant to show thanks for the hard work of raising and educating the next generation.
