There are almost four million teachers in the US and some of them have it hard. The pressure to bear the financial burden of underfunded schools districts by paying for supplies out of pocket is just the begining. With the Florida House of Representatives pushing a bill that would allow teachers to bear arms in classrooms, teachers might soon be expected to protect students from school shootings.
But this week, teachers get the extra credit. Because they go through just as much as the toddlers, tweens, teenagers, and adults they teach and empower every day, several, restaurants are offering major deals and freebies.
