Highlights@Home: Thank You, Teachers!

It’s safe to say that teachers have never been as appreciated as they are right now when so many parents are experiencing the challenge of serving as their child’s at-home teacher. In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, the theme for our newest offering of free, Fun with a Purpose resources is called “Thank You, Teachers!”  Thanking teachers is not only a nice thing to do, but showing appreciation is a simple but important practice of gratitude. Research shows that people who regularly pause to reflect on what they are thankful for tend to be happier, healthier, and more optimistic.
