Teacher Appreciation Week, 2022

There could have been so many ways to cover this topic, but instead, I decided to write about perks. In other words, providing a list of places where can you find things that will make this week that much better.

And before I start listing places that offer discounts, freebies, or any kind of complimentary service, know this. Some of you may have learned that a teacher resigned, has had a nervous breakdown, health with a difficult situation, or went on a strike (that was me from March 8th to March 29th).

TikTok Video: My favorite month of the year is May. This is true for most educators looking forward to Summer vacation.

The above paragraph serves as a reminder you are a hero and an ambassador to your school, students, and community. Please contact the business prior to, assuming they are participating in Teacher Appreciation Week, and I am referencing places in and around Minneapolis.
