Teachers made a difference in my life. From elementary schools, junior high, high school and college, there were teachers who inspired me to do better. They helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, know what it takes to master a subject, and encouraged me to keep going when I failed. Now, as a father, I see the same lessons being passed on to my 14-year old daughter during her education from teachers who are passionate about teaching.
May 9 is National Teacher Appreciation Day. And Marco’s Pizza is celebrating by recognizing teachers across the country with free pizzas. Marco’s also wants others to share their stories about a teacher that inspired them. In addition, we want to know what inspires teachers about teaching. Teachers can tells us by completing this form. And for their feedback, they will have a chance to win a pizza party for their class, as well as the grand prize -- a weekend trip for two to THE BIG APPPLE, or $2,500 in Apple products.
