Do you remember the last time you said thank you to a teacher? Here's your chance to thank a teacher for making public school GREAT!

National Teacher Day May 6, 2014

Get Ready for Teacher Appreciation Week and National Teacher Day!

Join the recognition with thousands of people who are saying thank you to the teacher who inspired them the most. You're invited to take part in the NEA’s National Teacher Day #thankateacher Vine campaign. Create  your own six-second video and post it using the #ThankATeacher hashtag.  See the tips below.  The NEA is promoting the #ThankATeacher video campaign, April and early May, on all of their social networks, including NEA Today. If you’re not on Vine, no worries—as long as you use the #ThankATeacher hashtag, your posts will be included on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Want to participate?  Here’s how:

1. Vine is available as a free download on all three major smartphone platforms, including Android, iOS and Windows phones.  After installation, you'll be prompted to sign up with either your Twitter account or email address.
2. Start recording! Press the camera icon in the top-right corner of the app. Holding your finger to the screen begins recording, and releasing your finger pauses it.
3. Once you've recorded your video, press the arrow in the top-right corner of your screen and preview your finished product. If you'd like to rearrange your sequence of clips, press the Edit button and simply drag and drop your individual clips to their new places in your timeline. You can delete clips by dragging them to the top of the screen into the trashcan icon, as seen above.
4. When you're finished editing, press Save, and then press the green checkmark at the bottom of your screen. You'll be brought to the Share screen where you can add a caption and the #ThankATeacher hashtag.
5. Share your Vine on your Facebook and Twitter and ask your network to #ThankATeacher.

Here are some suggestions for your video script—feel free to tweak and customize.
