Celebrating Our Long Beach Teachers

AFM1From Long Beach preschools and Long Beach elementary schools to Long Beach middle schools, Long Beach high schools and Long Beach colleges, teachers are an important part of our lives and of our kids. They work tirelessly to help us learn and prepare us for life out in the real world, including putting us on a good career path.AFM2

In return, we need to let them know just how much they are appreciated. That’s why every year we designate a special week and day for them. This year, Teacher Appreciation Week is May 2nd through May 6th, and Teacher Appreciation Day is Tuesday, May 3rd.AFM3

To help you get an A+ on your teacher gift, we have a gift guide for Teacher Appreciation Week that will sure to have something that fits your style and price point. Check out these gift ideas for teachers:

  • Epicurean Delight is a stunning, luxurious array of blooms that includes hydrangea, roses, tulips and cymbidium orchids along with real and decorative foliage in a cylindrical glass vase.
