On Tuesday, May 8 Teacher Appreciation Day was celebrated across the country. Crayola invited me to speak at the #CrayolaThanks event in New York City. To say the least, it was an incredible experience. Crayola donated an incredible amount of time, effort and money to teachers and schools. They allowed me to speak about the importance of teachers working together and thanking each other. Additionally, Debra Messing spoke at the event and brought her high school drama teacher to the stage. They both spoke of their fantastic relationship over the years. I am so thankful to Crayola for their dedication to teachers. I truly felt celebrated as an educator, and was so honored to spend the day in the middle of Manhattan with other educators to enjoy what teacher appreciation is all about.
