Teaching Matters

#TeachingMatters: PDS National Teacher Appreciation Day Initiative, May 3
#TeachingMatters is a Watson College of Education Professional Development System (PDS) initiative for National Teacher Appreciation Day. This Twitter campaign is an opportunity to spread awareness about “why teaching matters” in an effort to encourage young people and career changers to consider teaching as a profession. On Tuesday, May 3, UNCW students, faculty and staff, along with our school and community partners, are encouraged to post 10-second videos or written messages to a common Twitter hashtag explaining why teaching matters and, ultimately, thanking a teacher for National Teacher Appreciation Day!

Twitter posts should use the hashtags:
