It's Teacher Appreciation Time!
Teacher Appreciation Week is May 8-12, 2017, and it's a great time to thank a special teacher in your life.
This year’s theme is “Teachers Deliver.” And they do! Teachers deliver so much to our students, families, and communities — inspiration, motivation and, ultimately, the future of our children!
How can you celebrate teachers and deliver your thanks and gratitude to them? No worries, Team Twist has rounded up our favorite ways to express your gratitude during Teacher Appreciation week and beyond. Keep reading for great gifts and ways to show you care!

Teachers know a good breakfast makes for a great start to the day. Start the morning off right with hearty grains or sweet pastries.

- Thank You BERRY Much - Let the sweet smells of blueberry muffins and fresh colors of raspberries, strawberries, and bananas entice your team to express their gratitude.
Express Your Gratitude with a Great Gift
Apples are nice but a little bling goes a long way! Shower your favorite teacher in stylish supplies, customize a gift with ideas from our Pinterest page, or get them a gift card so they can reward themselves for a job well done!
Get a Gift for the Classroom
Teachers spend a lot of money out-of-pocket for classroom supplies. Say thanks by helping them stock up on essentials for their students.
A Word of Thanks
It isn't all about the gifts. A simple heartfelt note letting the teacher know the impact they are making on your child goes a long way. It's also a great time to talk about teacher appreciation with your child, and how they too can say thanks to their teachers!
