Celebrating the Superheroes of Our Classrooms with LG Electronics USA

Last month marked the one-year anniversary of the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States. Teachers everywhere stepped forward as the unsung heroes for our students, as youth struggled to navigate the rising mental health challenges of our new reality.

“In the past year, teachers have been critical influences in our children’s lives; they have helped to maintain a sense of consistency, normalcy, and inspiration for America’s children. They are true superheroes and they deserve to be celebrated,” says Dr. Laura Bakosh in an introductory video for the LG Happiness League.

Our partners at LG Electronics USA recently launched the Happiness League initiative honoring America's teachers for their heroic efforts equipping students with social and emotional wellness skills needed to persevere and succeed in life. We are proud to be part of this initiative, along with fellow partners Be Strong, Discovery Education, The Greater Good Science Center, and the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL).

Over the next few weeks, 50 superhero teachers will be inducted into the Happiness League leading up to National Teacher Appreciation Day on May 4, 2021. Inner Explorer nominees include teachers who have gone above and beyond to support students through daily mindfulness in the classroom.

"They are truly superheroes providing our youth with the courage to endure and prosper, and deserve special recognition," said Christine Ackerson, head of corporate social responsibility for LG Electronics USA.

We are thrilled to continue sharing more about our nominees and pay tribute to their invaluable work. Keep up to date with their stories by following us on social media.
