Happy Cinco De Mayo!In addition to that, it’s #TeacherAppreciationWeek AND Giving Tuesday! Wanna shout out your teacher? Keep checking it out below!

I also had a little chance to talk with Lily Eskelsen Garcia about Teacher Appreciation Week! Check out the interview here:


"It’s Teacher Appreciation Week, and the Thank a Teacher campaign is going strong. We’ve partnered again with the Virginia Lottery to achieve one goal: sending thank-you notes to as many Virginia public school teachers as possible.

Thank a teacher today – visit to send a digital thank-you note! While you’re at it, please remind parents, students and anyone who knows a deserving teacher that they can do the same. You can send the notes through midnight on Friday, May 10.

Teachers who receive a thank-you note can enter for a chance to win one of two Virginia vacation packages courtesy of the Virginia Tourism Corporation. All PTAs that participate will receive Virginia Lottery Scratchers along with their notecards.
