Get Social for American Education Week

Here's how you can use social media to spread the word and celebrate your school and your colleagues November 18-22.

November 19-22 marks the National Education Association’s 98th annual celebration of American Education Week. This year we want to use social media to demonstrate how much we appreciate the educators who nurture and support each and every student in our schools. To join us, just snap a picture that represents your appreciation for public schools and all who work in them and post it to your social channels using #AEW2019 or #WeLoveOurESPs.
