It’s Teacher Appreciation Week in the US,  and we are deeply grateful for teachers everywhere and their enduring commitment to do such important work with caring, compassion, and expertise.

As students face unprecedented challenges – ranging from a youth mental health crisis to increasing concerns about school shootings to managing learning delays and other social impacts of the pandemic – we are deeply aware of the immense responsibility teachers everywhere are shouldering.

In these trying times, so many teachers are beacons of hope, foundations of support, and pillars of leadership making a profound difference in the lives of young people. We are full of gratitude for all they do to act as buffers protecting kids emotionally and physically while creating protected spaces where young people can grow, learn, and thrive.

As an expression of our gratitude,  we are happy to share our popular Boundary & Consent Posters, our Safety Tips handouts and two of our most popular colorful teaching posters – along with a code you can use now until July 1 to get FREE access to three of the most popular resources for educators in the Kidpower Online Learning Center:
