We don’t need trophies or accolades for what we do, but a little recognition and appreciation goes a long way. Students and parents would suffice, but when famous people with large fan bases shout out teachers on social media, it influences others to support teachers, as well. Here are a few of our favorite celebrity tweets sticking up for all the selfless, hardworking educators out there.

I’m always shocked how little teachers are paid. Don’t our representatives know that teachers have one of the hardest and most important jobs in our country ? https://t.co/heWmQHE2eo

With all this Back-to-school madness, just want to sincerely thank ALL the teachers for showing up for these kids. I have so much respect for your dedication to caring for young hearts and minds. #ThankATeacher

We also pay trillions in taxes collectively as a nation and I personally pay millions. Our elected representatives have to make wise decisions about how that money is spent. A higher priority should be placed on education, including paying teachers well
