Throughout May we celebrate Teacher Appreciation Month, a tradition that dates to 1985 when the NEA declared the first week in May Teacher Appreciation Week. At Distinctive Inns of New England (DINE), we like to extend a week-long celebration to the entire month of May and beyond. Five of the 12 DINE inns have created offers to honor teachers and educators throughout the month of May.
And for those who may not be in a teaching profession, DINE inns offer several themed and seasonal specials and packages. May is the perfect time for a romantic getaway in DINE country, and most of the inns are still offering winter rates, so this is the perfect time for a nice affordable spring holiday.
Please note: These offers for teachers may not be used in conjunction with any other discount, promotion, gift certificate, package, third party booking site or offer. These offers are only valid when arranged directly with these participating businesses, and are not honored when requested through third parties or other booking sites. Those booking these offers should be prepared to show proof of employment in the education field.
Remember, when taking to social media anytime during Teacher Appreciation Week, May 7-13, 2017, use hashtag, #ThankATeacher to honor those who contribute so much to creating our future leaders.
