Happy Thanksgiving from the VIPKid Team!

Happy Thanksgiving, VIPKid community! We’ve been celebrating National Gratitude Month throughout November, and it all culminates today—a day created for giving thanks.

So, we’d like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to all of the exceptional teachers who make the wheels turn at VIPKid. Those who wake up at 4:00 in the morning, pour a cup of coffee and throw on a smile to teach their regulars. The ones who come home from a long day at their “normal” job, open their laptop, and dive right into a lesson on parallelograms. The teachers who surprise themselves with their newly-discovered puppetry skills, and those who hate to sing but do it for the love of their students. Thank you to the teachers who choose every day to join us on this exciting—and sometimes rocky!—journey to use global classrooms to create global citizens. It’s been a wild ride, and we’re thrilled to have you with us.

This year has been a big one for VIPKid. We held our first ever regional conference in Salt Lake City. We celebrated one full year of the Rural Education Project to provide online education to children in provincial communities in China. We even adopted a giant panda and got ourselves a new look! And then, of course, we celebrated a monumental five year anniversary surrounded by the magic of Disney World and hundreds of VIPKid teachers from around the globe. Put simply, we have a lot to be grateful for this year.

We’re so grateful, in fact, that our team made a special video to share with you. Check it out below, and share a comment with the things you’re most thankful for this year!

Thank you, VIPKid teachers. Wishing you a joy-filled holiday with friends and family!
