Happy Teacher Appreciation Month, guys! I come from a family full of teachers, so this month is a pretty big deal to me. (I’m not kidding! Both my parents, both my brothers, my sister, and I have all been teachers. I’m pretty sure if you cut us, #2 pencils and copies of Lord of the Flies would bleed out.)

Nominate your teacher for a TeachKind Teacher Appreciation Award!

Now I know teachers get a bad rap sometimes for imposing a bunch of rules and making people ask permission to pee, but let’s face it: They can be pretty awesome! There are so many educators out there who help students, including starting animal rights groups, helping students campaign to add veggie burgers to the lunchroom menu, giving alternatives to animal dissections, and more. This is why peta2 is partnering up with TeachKind to honor some of the amazing and inspiring work that these instructors are doing!

*Contest details: PETA will choose the winners by assessing two criteria—how compassionate an example the teacher is setting for students through his or her actions (such as by encouraging students to try vegan foods, telling them about how important it is to adopt pets and not buy them, explaining why shoes shouldn’t be made of leather, etc.) and the effectiveness of the teacher’s actions to help animals this school year (for example, by getting a veggie burger added to the school lunch menu, volunteering to head up the school animal rights club, setting up a fundraiser to help a local animal shelter, etc.). If we select the teacher you’ve nominated, we’ll be contacting him or her for consent before announcing the winner.
