Show Your Gratitude on Teacher Appreciation Day

By Kristen St John posted 04-20-2023 14:43


All of us in AGU have benefited from dedicated teachers or mentors. They shared their knowledge, and taught us valuable scientific and professional skills. May 8th is Teacher Appreciation Day in the United States. Please show your gratitude to your former teachers and mentors. One way to do this - and to help support the AGU Education Section in the process - is to make a donation to the Honor an Educator campaign. By making a donation to the Honor an Educator campaign, you can indicate a teacher or mentor you wish to honor. That honoree will receive a letter from AGU about your gift. And the AGU Education Section will add their name to our Honor an Educator website.

Making a donation this year has an added benefit as well. This year, we are excited to announce that generous donors have stepped forward to match up to 100 gifts of $50 or more made to the Honor an Educator campaign. The match will unlock $5,000 to further expand the Education Section’s work supporting professional development and conference-related expenses of Earth and space science educators and students.
