This week is Teacher Appreciation Week, but today is Teacher Appreciation Day. Our giving spirit continues as we say thanks for the hard work you put in for your students. We try to show our thanks as much as we can, but showing how much we appreciate your work isn’t easy. Your DEN Team thinks you really are a star, spreading what you have learned about Discovery Education and growing the DEN. We have a couple of special treats for you just to say thanks. Please enjoy today’s tokens of appreciation. Today’s treats are not only sweet, but also will brighten your days.
To access the Teacher Appreciation Week gifts from the DEN, log in to DiscoveryEducation.com and click on Discovery Educator Network on the left sidebar. Then, click on Teacher Appreciation Week and you’ll find all the information you need.
Don’t forget about these upcoming events for you and your students.

Friday, May 16 – 30 Minutes of Discovery
Encourage your students to spend 30 Minutes exploring their own interests and discovering new ones in their Discovery Education student accounts. Frogs – yep! Music – yep! The history of airplanes – yep! The sky’s the limit: just explore and enjoy. When they’re done spending 30 Minutes, please tell us what they did! You and your students can also download and print a participation certificate. It’s 30 Minutes just for them. Help them spend it well and enjoy the learning!
