Monday’s Google Doodle honours teachers, who were already unsung heroes before classrooms closed across the country. To protect students and check the spread of the coronavirus. Those teachers who quickly moved their classrooms and curriculum online-only highlight the superhuman effort instructors make to educate their students.
Google created the Doodle for the May 4 start of Teacher Appreciation Week
Google said search interest in “how to thank a teacher” tripled last month. Reason being, students and parents have looked for ways to show their appreciation for their educators.
Through a partnership with the National Teacher of the Year program, the latest Doodle was designed. It involved the State Teachers of the Year for 2020.
Doodle creator Kevin Laughlin collaborated with the 54 2020 State Teachers of the Year. The collaboration took place during their visit to Google this past February.
Google posted a blog on its doodle’s page wishing all the teachers for the appreciation week. The blog stated,
Happy US Teacher Appreciation Week!
Today (and everyday!), we honor teachers across the nation, who continue to work tirelessly to shape our future generations, even in the midst of the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic.
However, it also mentioned Kevin’s statement on his experience working with the teachers on today’s Doodle!
I know from firsthand experience how much of a positive impact a teacher can have on a young person’s life. I can’t express how happy I am to have had the opportunity to be a part of the Teacher Appreciation project this year.
When I met these teachers on campus in February, I was so inspired by their love of teaching and dedication to their students. which I felt each minute I has spent with them. As they presented their Doodle designs, they shared anecdotes about their classrooms. advocated for their students, and spoke passionately about educational equity.
I am glad to see their work represented in the final Doodle on Google’s homepage today. celebrating these often unsung heroes. To every teacher, thank you times infinity!
