Grand Junction is showing their appreciation for teachers on National Teacher Appreciation Day. Grand Junction tells us which teachers they appreciate and why.

Today is National Teacher Appreciation Day and we wanted to do something to show teachers just how much they are appreciated. Teachers, students, and parents have all had to adjust to remote learning amid the coronavirus pandemic. We asked you to tell us which District 51 teacher you appreciate and why on our Facebook and we loved your responses.
