A virtual care package from PBLWorks to you! The phrase “more than ever” has been used so often this year. But during Teacher Appreciation Week (May 3-7), it truly feels more important than ever to send extra gratitude to the teachers in our PBL community.
Thank you, thank you for all that you do.
For your commitment to your students. For your enthusiasm for being a learner yourself. For working hard to reach more students with PBL.
For navigating what learning looks like in changing contexts: remote, in-person, and in between. For being your classroom’s go-to tech support, and for keeping the pencils sharpened. For the extra hours and extra heart that you invest each school week. For the long-term impact that you have on young people.
You make a difference each day through your teaching and your example.
This past school year—through all the challenges and uncertainties—our pride in you and teachers across the nation has grown exponentially.
Honestly, we’d throw you all a parade if we could. You deserve it! But in true 2021 style, we have something that can arrive virtually — and bonus: you can easily share with a teacher friend!
Rest up to recharge for the rest of the week. Check out a new-to-you app—like this one or that one, or these—to support your self-care and mindfulness practice. Or take 5 minutes to read a poem. (You might even share one with your students!).
Fact: Coloring isn’t just for kids! Print out one of these coloring pages (pdf), get out some crayons or colored pencils, and get in touch with your creative self.
To all the teachers in our PBL community: we’re so grateful for you!
