Teachers are magic. When the government falls short, they share their paychecks with their students. They bring knowledge into our lives. In the classroom or over Zoom, teachers go above and beyond always, even when they shouldn't have to. Which is probably why Teacher Appreciation Day, which falls on May 5, stretches out into Teacher Appreciation Week. One day is simply not enough to show the people that teach our toddles and guide our teenagers how truly indebted to them we are.
These are hard times for anyone, but teachers are working like never before to educate a generation at risk of falling behind, working through the broadband inequality and limited access to computers that burden their students. Then we have those parents who have full-time jobs and full-time childcare to worry about, often stepping in as teachers themselves. As a small token of appreciation, these are some deals that are either available special this week or year-round.
