Teacher Appreciation Week is traditionally the first FULL week in May, Teacher Appreciation DAY is the Tuesday of that week.  Tuesday, May 2nd, 2023.  Although, this year, it seems that more teacher appreciation things are happening the week of May 8th but some are happening earlier.  So, I’ve compiled a list of the deals I could find and tried to include complete start and end dates.  If you are a teacher you’re going to want to go through this list!
