Every day teachers around the country go above and beyond the call of duty to support students. During Teacher Appreciation Week, please remember to take time to simply say, "Thank you."

Do you know of a great teacher who deserves a special “thank you” for going the extra mile for their students? Global education company Promethean aims to support teachers every day and in honor of National Teacher Appreciation Week, launches today the third annual Thank a Teacher Contest.

“Every day teachers around the country go above and beyond the call of duty to support students. The disheartening results from the recently released MetLife Survey of the American Teacher showing a 23% drop in teachers’ job satisfaction – the lowest it has been since 1987- are an indication that we need to stop and thank the educators around us,” said Promethean North American President Rob Goldberg. “During Teacher Appreciation Week, please remember to take the time to acknowledge teachers’ commitment to preparing tomorrow’s leaders.”

Nominate a deserving educator by submitting a 50-75 word essay that describes why the educator should be honored and why you are thankful for having this teacher in your life or at your school. Send the essay, along with a photo and the educator’s complete contact information by email to thankateacher(at)prometheanworld(dot)com. Nominations will only be accepted by email. Go to the Thank a Teacher Facebook page for additional details and the Official Contest Rules.

The winner of the 2013 Promethean Thank a Teacher Contest will receive a trip to the Annual Conference for the International Society for Technology in Education (#ISTE2013) to be held in San Antonio, TX, June 23-26, 2013. Submissions will be accepted from May 1, 2013 at 12:00 a.m. through May 8, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. The winner will be notified May 9.

Only educators employed in a K-12 school located within the contiguous United States of America plus the District of Columbia qualify. See the complete set of Official Contest Rules on the Thank a Teacher Facebook page:
