That Day Teachers Feasted on Appreciation

In a world where knowledge is power, teachers hold the key to unlocking the potential within each student. Their dedication, passion, and unwavering commitment play a crucial role in shaping the minds and futures of countless individuals. Shanghai American School knows just how impactful these educators are, which is why we recently rolled out the red carpet for Teacher Appreciation Week. 




Forget the typical apple-on-the-desk gesture; our teachers were spoiled all week long with tasty treats and massages. But the pièce de résistance were the lavish lunches hosted by PTSA on both campuses. These lunches had over 100 dishes - from Peking duck to sushi to pulled pork sliders – our teachers certainly didn’t leave hungry that day.  




It was a chance for these hardworking educators to kick back, share stories, and take a much-needed break from their daily grind. Trust us; they deserved every minute of it. 

We hope our teachers feel the love every day, but especially these past couple of weeks.
