National Teacher Appreciation Week is here. The week of Monday, May 5, through Friday, May 9, is being celebrated nationwide as a week to say "thank you" to teachers, assistants, coaches, school nurses, guidance counselors, and all the other educational professionals working hard to improve students' lives.

It isn't too late to thank a teacher who has made an impact on you or your child. Whether it's on Twitter with the hashtag #thankateacher or by writing a note with pen and paper, any time is the right time to show your appreciation.
