SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- During the month of May, teachers are being honored as part of Teacher Appreciation Month.

The Syracuse City School District kicked off the "Thank a Teacher" campaign on Monday. Volunteers will be delivering gifts and treats to every school in the district to make sure the city's educators know how much they're appreciated.

"It definitely boosted my morale. I feel like I stay late some days and sometimes you feel like you're not appreciated, but it was nice to have them actually come and say thank you to me. It makes me want to work harder and I look forward to having more events like this in the future," said Beth Squire, a Syracuse teacher.

Mayor Stephanie Miner and SU Head Basketball Coach Jim Boeheim were just some of the local leaders asked to speak at Monday's kick off event.
