Take time to thank the men and women who work so hard to teach our children of the Tampa Bay area. 

This week, many schools in Hillsborough County are celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week. There are many ways you can thank those who teach your children.



Want to get them something special? How about some chocolate or candy. Don't forget about the things they need in their classrooms to help teach your kids. Stock them up on cleaning supplies, craft supplies and more. Get them a new plant for the classroom and thank them for helping your kids grow. There are so many great things you can do to show appreciation for these everyday heroes.
