“Educator week feels more important this year than ever. We recognize the extraordinary resilience, dedication and creativity with which our teachers have met the unique challenges of education during the pandemic. We are proud to acknowledge their commitment to making a difference in the lives of students and their families.” -Books-A-Million CEO, Terrance G. Finley.
From October 10th-18th, BAM is hosting our annual Educator Week! Day after day, year after year, teachers continue to selflessly show up for their students. Maybe more than ever before, 2020 has proven how much teachers change lives. And we couldn't more grateful to them.
To celebrate our educators, we're running our Nominate a Teacher Contest through October 18th. You can submit a teacher for nomination and then share your entries on social media! From there, the teacher with the most votes will win a $1,000 Books-a-Million shopping spree.
But not to fear if you don't win! All teachers will receive a 25% discount on in-store and online purchases through 10/18. Teachers who bring their school ID to any BAM location will also be able to register for an official Educator Gard, which grants access to a variety of benefits and discounts throughout the year. On top of all that? Teachers can get a free tall coffee in our Joe Muggs cafe.
Thank you teachers for all you do. Our children's future is brighter and smarter because of you.
