National Teacher Day 2012

Today is National Teacher Day and all this week is National Teacher Appreciation Week. Everybody has a favorite teacher. I know I do (my wife). Perhaps your favorite teacher inspired you into your current profession or first taught you how to read. Whoever this person is, this week is great opportunity to tell them thank you. Send them a card or drop a gift to say thank you for their hard work.

Or make an online donation in their honor to a good cause such as Adopt-A-Classroom, Curing Kids Cancer or any local school foundation like the one noted below.

One of our good causes, Montclair Fund for Educational Excellence (MFEE) , is doing their part to appreciate teachers in their community. They have just launched their annual Toast to the Teachers event. Montclair families, friends, and community groups host a lunch, dinner or other type of party to honor a cherished teacher, coach, principal or other member of the school-community. These events not only honor a teacher but also raise money for MFEE educational grants.
