North Carolina teachers light the way - Thank you Teachers

Shine a light outside your window on May 5th to honor our great North Carolina Teachers.

As we celebrate educators during Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week, May 4-8, please help us honor educators for their heroic accomplishments to completely transform their classes to a new way of teaching and learning during this crisis.

On Tuesday, May 5 to recognize Teacher Appreciation Day, please display a light in a window or outside at 8:20 p.m. (2020 military time) for 20 minutes to say thank you to teachers as they continue to light the way to learning for North Carolina’s students.

Remember to share your photos with us using the hashtag #NCLighthouseLeaders.
