Teacher Appreciation Week is May 7-11 - share your thoughts and support for teachers on social

PSD  teachers work tirelessly every day to support students across the district. May 7 marks the start of teacher appreciation week, and we want our teachers to know how thankful we are for their dedication to our students.

If you want to thank a special teacher for their hard work, post a thank you to Twitter or Facebook, tag us, and use hashtag #PSDProud. These messages of support can mean the world to someone.

Watch one PSD teacher's reaction when she learned about the impact she had on one of her former fourth grade students:

Congratulations to staff for their outstanding accomplishments!
