TAMPA (CNN) — It’s ‘Teacher Appreciation Week’ and time to shine a light on the world of education.

Of course, 2020 is a different year, with teachers doing most of their classwork with students online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The crisis is causing teachers to take special steps like send out art kits in the mail and do drive-by visits to students.

For families who would like to honor their teachers this week, an artsy card or thank you video will probably suffice.

Teacher Appreciation Week lasts from May 4 to May 8, but feel free to show them gratitude year-round.
