Teaching isn’t the highest paying profession, but it’s often described as one of the most rewarding.

(May 5, 2015) - This week (May 4-8) is all about recognizing educators, as part of Teacher Appreciation Week.

Students across central Indiana are doing special things for their teachers all week long.

At Pittsboro Elementary School in Hendricks County, the parent teacher association hosted a luncheon for teachers on Tuesday.

The North West Hendricks Education Foundation surprised teachers in the district with grants totaling $5,000.

Students at Pittsboro Elementary School are encouraged to bring flowers for their teachers later this week.

These acts of kindness will continue through Friday as a way for students and parents to show their appreciation to teachers in their school.

“Unfortunately I do feel like our teachers are underappreciated sometimes. I think as parents we get busy and we forget that teachers put a lot of extra time into their job, so it’s really important to show our support for them, especially this week.” said Angel Dixon, chair of the staff appreciation committee at Pittsboro Elementary School PTA.

Teachers at Prairie Trace Elementary in the Carmel Clay School Corporation were treated to breakfast Monday.

Some students in the Indianapolis Public School system are taking to Twitter to express their gratitude towards their teachers using the hashtag #thankateacher.
