Oct. 5 is dedicated to selfless teachers around the globe. World Teachers’ Day was established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization to celebrate the educators who share their knowledge with students of all ages. It also raises awareness about the need for teachers around the world. Educators play a huge role in the community, so show your thanks this year on World Teachers’ Day. Here are some ways that you and your business can acknowledge the work of local schools and their staff.
Share on social media
Ask your followers on social media to share stories about their favorite local teachers. This is a great way to spread awareness of all the wonderful things that educators do for students, above and beyond their teaching duties. Reach out to each teacher mentioned and offer them a coupon to your business that they can redeem during the coming months. In addition to honoring local educators, this strategy will also help to build brand awareness within your community.
Another option is to send short thank you cards to local teachers. Have your staff sign a Thank You Business Greeting Card for each school in your city or town. The small gesture will let teachers know just how much you appreciate their dedication to local youth. You can also include “We Love Our Teachers” Magnets, customized with the names of area schools.
If you know teachers who regularly come into your store or restaurant, why not have a small appreciation gift for them? There are lots of promotional products that have an education theme. You can choose to hand out Promotional Brain Stress Relievers or a High 5 Custom Highlighter to your dedicated customers. The small gesture will let them know what an integral part of the community they are.
