Throughout the world, day in and day out, teachers dedicate their lives to transforming the lives of others. Through incredibly hard work and an unexplainable kindness, teachers spark a love of learning in their students. They enable them to reach their full potential by encouraging curiosity and exploration. At Discovery Education, we know and appreciate how hard teachers work to make a difference in their students' lives. This is why we want to take some time out to say thank you through our annual celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week; to provide the recognition that you all deserve.

Teacher Appreciation Week 2015 includes:
Downloadable strategies, free access to our services and some fun printables.

Which teacher or teaching colleague do you want to say thanks to? Who has made a real difference in your life?
