Teachers and nurses are on center stage this month – both are given a week during which we can recognize their contributions. Blossom Flower Shops has the thank you flowers and gifts perfect for gifts that will let them know just how special they are! National Nurses Week begins on May 6, which is also National Nurse Day. The end of the week is May 12, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birthday. The week set aside to honor teachers falls during the same time frame this year. Official dates for the national observance are May 7-13, with National Teacher Day taking place on May 9.
Coincidental Numbers: The most recent census reported 3.1 million teachers in the United States – which also happens to be the number of nurses coast to coast.
Teachers are sometimes overlooked for their contributions but are among the most deserving of honorees. Teachers encourage students to think differently, to problem-solve creatively, and to excel in ways they never thought they could. Teachers are artistic, mathematics, and articulate. They exhibit patience, compassion, and dedication to the future of our children and young adults.They are very rarely rewarded for their commitment, but you can change that with a gorgeous floral design delivered right to the school.
Social Recognition: On May 9th, be sure to share stories or photos of your favorite teachers on social media, with the hashtag #ThankATeacher.
When it comes to thanking nurses, we don’t even know where to start! They tirelessly work long shifts so that there is comfort in the middle of the night. They care for their patients like they are their own family, with the competence of a professional but the care and compassion of your best friend. Nurses are by our sides during some of life’s most challenging times, as well as during some of the most joyous occasions. This Nurses Day, let them know just how much their presence meant to you, with a bright floral design or gourmet basket delivered right to the nurse’s station at your local hospital. National Nurses Week is an opportunity to let these dedicated professionals know just how much they matter.
