Those who can


Our teachers need to hear this now

Teachers have always answered the call. Accepted the challenge. Because they can. Now, more than ever, they need our thanks and support. Please share this video for all our Texas teachers.

Teachers, share your story.

Using the hashtag #TeachersCan, upload and share a video to Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram about why you teach, what you wish others knew about teaching, and how teachers can make a big difference for students.

Use these share your stories prompts to help get you started


Everyone else, thank a teacher.

Is there a teacher from your past or present who you want to honor for how they changed your life, or someone else’s? Share a video or post on social media using the hashtag #TeachersCan and #ThankATeacher
