May 2nd to 8th: Teacher Appreciation Week

“No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.” – Tom Schulman, screenwriter of Dead Poets Society (1989)

Every one of us knows at least one teacher, who shaped our future by motivating and encouraging us. Indeed, we celebrate World Teacher’s Day on October 5th to acknowledge the sustainable endeavours of teachers in education all around the globe. However, since there are various national teaching days but no national day that recognises the efforts of teachers in Germany, we thought to take the opportunity of a US-American tradition to celebrate your impact in schools during the pandemic. Teacher Appreciation Week is an annual opportunity to honour hard-working, dedicated and enthusiastic teachers and their commitment to leave no one behind. The current situation has been a tough one for all of us – especially for teachers, who had a great effort in ensuring that #LearningNeverStops.

On behalf of the Lit4School-team: Happy Teachers Appreciation Week to all of you, and thank you for your impact!

Kind regards and stay safe,
