Tuesday is National Teacher Appreciation Day, but Teacher Appreciation Week kicked off Monday and runs through Friday.
To show their appreciation, some businesses are offering discounts and freebies.
The dates and participation of the deals may vary by location. Some businesses require teachers to be signed up for emails or loyalty programs or have an app. Be sure to check with the location before visiting.

To get either deal, teachers must show a valid teacher ID, a coupon and rewards member number. Find coupons at this link.
