Dear Great Teachers,

Our schools are facing some tough challenges right now. But, the way TBD sees it, there’s no better time to bring the spotlight back on those teachers that make our classrooms thrive.

They *just* launched ThanksForTeaching.Us, a 30 day campaign to share thanks for the unforgettable teachers that shaped our lives.

Take a minute to say thanks by recognizing one (or a bunch) of your favorite teachers and what they inspired you to do. I just added mine.

Two of my studiomates, Kevin and Yoko helped design and build the site. Studiomates represent!

  1. GREAT idea!! (My sister is a 2nd grade teacher who just got her Master’s despite a hostile environment against teachers in Idaho.) Keep the faith, teachers! You do good work!

  2. What a great idea ! Its been quite a surprise thought to see the post about Mr.Delieutraz that you wrote ! He was my teacher too only two years ago, and I totally agree with his name to figure on that website :)

  3. Brilliant idea and lovely to see these people get the credit they deserve!
