May is Teacher Appreciation Month – thank you, Georgia teachers!

In Georgia, the month of May is recognized as Teacher Appreciation Month in honor of the world-class educators serving students in our K-12 public schools. This month is a time to recognize, celebrate, and lift up the teachers who give so much of themselves to prepare all Georgia students for life.
