Like many teachers, I have some mixed feelings about Teacher Appreciation Week. I wouldn't want to do away with it, but there's something awkward about the fact that we need this week as badly as we do. At the same time, we do not choose this work for recognition. When we get it, sometimes we doubt its sincerity, and other times we just don't know how to receive the acknowledgement.
