In recognition of teachers, the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum welcomes all educators to the Museum for Teacher Appreciation Day on Sunday, Nov. 14. The Museum will provide complimentary admission to all educators when teachers show their school identification at the door or register at the provided link. 

 

Teachers are also invited to stop by the Chapman Event Space between 10:00am and 2:00pm to learn about Becoming Your Personal Best, and to meet Olympians and Paralympians featured in the curriculum! There will be BYPB resources onsite and free goodies for teachers to take home. 

 

Becoming Your Personal Best (BYPB), a comprehensive resiliency curriculum available free for teachers, coaches, and adults who work with youth in any capacity. Through the lens of the inspirational life experiences of Olympians and Paralympians, youth in grades 4-12 expand their knowledge of self-identity, mindset, problem solving, perseverance, relationships and confidence.
