Thank you for all the extra time you spend after class with students who need a little more direction.

Thank you for all those late night hours you put in grading papers under your bedside lamp.

Thank you for choosing a profession where you can pour into the lives of others.

Thank you for listening to the kids who just need someone to talk to.

Thank you for all those times you showed up to school early and stayed long after everyone else was gone.

Thank you for all the sacrifices you’ve made for your students.

Thank you for being a teacher.

I wouldn’t be where I am today without the influence of all the teachers I’ve had in my life. It’s absolutely one of the most important professions in the world.

Right now, there are around 3.7 million full-time teachers in the United States, and we want to make sure all of them have the opportunity to hear a simple thank you.

That’s why I’m so excited to tell you about our Teacher Appreciation Giveaway. With the help of Churchill Mortgage, we’re giving away some amazing stuff:

Thank you, teachers!
