Happy Teacher Appreciation Week from the ICTE!

We are always grateful for all you do for your students, colleagues, schools, and community, and we want to celebrate you and the good work you do! For Teacher Appreciation Week 2021, we are looking for you to share your stories and ideas through a short (one to two paragraph) narrative or a brief (one to three minute) video about one of the following:

  • A tip or tale that you have about teaching

  • Why you like teaching

  • A teacher that inspires you (if they are a current high school teacher, why not nominate them for the for the NCTE High School Teacher of Excellence?)

We will spotlight entries on our blog or in future newsletters. Also, anyone who submits a narrative or video or nominates someone for the NCTE High School Teacher of Excellence will be entered in a drawing for one of five $15 Amazon gift cards. All submissions must be received by 11:59 pm ET on Saturday, May 8 to eligible for the drawing.
