If there is one profession other than military and first responders that deserve more, it's teachers. This week is Teacher Appreciation Week. Teachers should be appreciated all year round. They are overworked, underpaid, and put up with your children eight hours a day. In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, many businesses around the community are offering teachers things like free breakfast, coffee, or discounts on their products.

Here is a list of places celebrating teachers this week:

Whataburger: During Teacher Appreciation Week (May 2-6), Whataburger will celebrate educators across our 14-state footprint with free breakfast for our communities’ teachers (valid with school ID) and a 25% discount on all retail items at whatastore.com with the code WHATATEACHER22. Thanks for your tireless commitment to education
