Inns and B&Bs join retailers with offers for wandering educators during May Teacher Appreciation Month

Categories: 

May is Teacher Appreciation Month, a tradition that dates to 1985 when the NEA declared the first week in May Teacher Appreciation Week. Many inns and B&Bs join retailers and restaurants throughout the country to the tradition of honoring educators to the whole month of May and beyond. From nursery school teacher to college professor, May is a time to say “thank you” to those that dedicate their time and careers to education and learning. 

From lodging to retail, those who admire educators have come forward to offer thanks with special promotions, discounts, and more. Organized geographically, traveling educators and teachers are encouraged to take advantage of these offers.

Please note: These offers may not be used in conjunction with any other discount, gift certificate, package, third party booking site, or offer. The offers must be arranged directly with these participating businesses, not through third parties or other booking sites. Recipients should be prepared to show proof of employment in the education field.
