Shining a spotlight on our unsung heroes

Teachers dedicate their days and nights to changing lives. For many, they serve as beacons of light in the dark—which is why we’re shining a very large light in their honor. On Friday, May 11, the Empire State Building will shine in EF’s signature pink to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week. After all, superheroes deserve a super-large spotlight.

Introducing the EF Superhero League

We received over 2,000 nominations from students and parents from all across the country explaining why their favorite teacher is a superhero. After much deliberation (all of the nominees were awe-inspiring!) we selected five winners to receive a $1,000 school donation and a trip to NYC during Teacher Appreciation Week.
