#OhioLovesTeachers — Celebrate the great educators in your life


Valentine’s Day is a time for us to stop and tell those we care about how much they mean to us. This includes teachers. It is important to share with those special teachers in your life why you appreciate them for all they do every day to advocate, motivate and inspire. Here are a few simple ways you can share why you, and Ohio, love them.

  • Join the #OhioLovesTeachers campaign on Twitter and Instagram. We want to hear from everyone — school and district leaders, parents, family members, fellow teachers, community members and, of course, students! To take part, simply share a picture with your story about an inspiring educator using #OhioLovesTeachers and tag @OHEducation. Many of these images and stories will be selected and shared with our statewide social media network followers.
  • Print an #OhioLovesTeachers shout-out banner to express your thanks to a special teacher. Share a photo of this banner on social media or deliver it to the teacher in person. Download your banner here.
  • Looking for Valentine’s Day cards to show your appreciation? We created some cards you can print and distribute to teachers. Pick your favorite cards here. It’s just one small way to show teachers you truly appreciate them.
But let’s not just save our celebration of Ohio’s exceptional teachers for Valentine’s Day. Use this special day as a spark to continually spotlight their work and the ways they are changing lives. Join us in celebrating our everyday heroes and expressing that #OhioLovesTeachers!
