All across the United States, families and learners are honoring the individuals who have an amazing impact on their lives – educators! 

First celebrated in 1984, this week is a lovely way to say “thank you” to teachers, tutors, and mentors who’ve positively influenced and expanded a child’s learning. But here at Outschool, we’re not just honoring academic educators. ALL educators on the Outschool platform share their passions, interests, and unique perspectives with the Outschool community, and we couldn’t be more thankful.

With Teacher Appreciation Week upon us, we want to reflect on the incredible dedication, creativity, and passion that YOU bring to your classrooms every day. 

It’s time to celebrate and appreciate our tremendous Outschool educators with…

A BIG Thank You

To all our Outschool educators, we extend a thank you for your hard work, resilience, and compassion. Your dedication to creating engaging and inclusive learning environments has transformed the lives of countless learners, sparking curiosity, igniting passion, and instilling a love for learning that will last a lifetime. Outschool educators have continued to adapt, innovate, and thrive with rapid pace and growth over the years.
