The text "Deals & Discounts" sits on top of a yellow background with colorful confetti.

This year, teachers tirelessly stood up and advocated for their students and communities. They worked to educate themselves and those around them to demand a more just world.

The persistent work of an educator is crucial, but rest is just as important. This Teacher Appreciation Week, we’re sharing resources to help center and ground you in wellness, financial health, and beyond. So kick back and take a break—you’ve earned it. And don’t forget to spread the love of self-care and savings by sharing on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using #ThankYouTeachers.
