A letter from the Department of Education in preparation for the Teacher of the Year celebration:
"The Digital Team here at ED has been working really hard to prepare for the biggest Teacher celebration on the internet next week (well, we're celebrating everywhere, but *our specialty is the internet).
We have many exciting plans to show our appreciation for all the hard-working and dedicated teachers in our lives, but we need your help. We've put together a magic Digital Media Toolkit (attachment below) which will make it really easy for all of you to participate and to invite others to join in the celebration. In this toolkit, you'll find avatars, shareable graphics, social media messages and other ideas to show the love.
Please share this toolkit with any stakeholders, other organizations and agencies you work with and encourage them to join!
We know that you are excited, and we are too, but we ask that you don't post any of these graphics on social media until Teacher Appreciation Week begins on May 2nd."
And a BIG congratulations to Jahana Hayes, the newly named 2016 National Teacher of the Year!
