Every week we are so lucky to celebrate a Rockford area teacher for 97ZOK's teacher of the week, so for us, teacher appreciation week is pretty much every week.

But one week out of the year, all teachers, not just one, get an entire week of gratitude providing our children with love, motivation, inspiration and so much more.

To show their appreciation, a handful of Rockford businesses are offering teachers discounts and freebies today.

According to ABC 7 Chicago, they include:

  • Chipotle is offering a bogo on burritos from 3 p.m. to to close with your faculty ID.
  • MOD Pizza- if you haven't experienced MOD pizza  yet, this is the perfect opportunity for teachers to try it at a discount. Get half off a pizza or a salad with your school ID.
  • Apple is offering special pricing all week on products for students and educators.
  • Barnes & Knoble is taking 25% off publisher's list price on all purchases for classroom use.
  • In need of some new gear for summer break? Get 15% off your online purchase at J. Crew

Not a teacher? Share this with someone who is so they can take advantage.
