Teacher Appreciation Month 2023

May is Teacher Appreciation Month

Reimagining the school experience for our children is not an easy task, and it is only possible because of the incredible work that New York City Public Schools teachers do. They make sure that every child feels safe, supported, and inspired to reach their full potential. Teachers create environments that foster learning, growth, and development, and they do it with compassion, creativity, and a genuine love for our students.

The work our teachers perform go far beyond the classroom. They collaborate with families, engage with communities, and provide the kind of mentorship and guidance that will shape our students' lives for years to come. Teachers inspire our children to be curious, to be confident, and to be passionate about their dreams.

Join us this week in saying thank you to New York City’s teachers.

Use the DOE All-Stars tool to send a note of appreciation to the teachers making a difference in your life.

You can share your gratitude on social media using the hashtag #ThankaTeacherNYC. 

New York’s teachers have come through for us time and time again. Join us in extending gratitude and thanks for their extraordinary dedication to our students, our families, and our city.
