Thank a Teacher & Support GLSEN

3 students holding up an LGBTQ Pride flag with "Happy Teacher Appreciation Week" to the side

Teacher Appreciation Week is May 7-11!

Supportive educators can make all the difference. According to GLSEN research, LGBTQ students who can identify 11 or more supportive school staff are less likely to feel unsafe, have higher GPAs, and feel more connected to their school communities.

Because of the difference they make, educators deserve our gratitude. Thank a supportive educator in your life by purchasing Telefora's Be Happy Bouquet with Roses. From April 30-May 12, the bouquet is 20% off, and 10% of sales will benefit GLSEN's work to create safe and inclusive schools for all, including providing educators the resources they need to make every classroom inclusive for LGBTQ students.
