Area schools are recognizing the work of their teachers over the next several days.
National Teacher Appreciation Week is being celebrated across the country, and the Indiana State Teachers Association says the recognition will remind teachers their efforts are being noticed.
The ISTA is the state’s largest education employee organization. Officials say a small gesture can be meaningful to individuals in the profession.
In Marshall County, the Plymouth High School Softball team is also hosting an event. The softball team is now working every year to ensure Teacher Appreciation Week is recognized.
Culver High School will be bringing in food for their teachers over a lunch hour one day this week. Coffee mugs will also be distributed to the teachers.
The ISTA says it has nearly 40-thousand members.
