This school year has been unlike any other. But we’re getting through it, in large part thanks to our nation’s amazing educators. Take a moment to #ThankATeacherHCP during Teacher Appreciation Week, May 3-7.
Teachers influence the lives of millions of children every day—and in a year where instruction has been virtual, in-person or a mix of both, their immense work and impact have provided a much-needed sense of community and connection. Despite the challenges of the past year, educators across America are working hard to ensure every student has the tools they need to reach their full potential.
As a small way to give back to the heroes who keep our communities running, we are giving away one $1000 gift card to a DFW Area Teacher. and one $1000 gift card to a San Antonio area teacher. We will also be giving $1000 to the school the winning teacher works at! Want to show your favorite teacher how much you appreciate them? Enter them to win below! The teacher with the most nominations in each market will win.
