Teacher Appreciation Day isn't just that day when your mom sent you to school with a lame-o mug or apple-shaped paperweight or Starbucks gift card for your favorite teacher. It's actually one of the few days when educators get the respect and recognition they deserve. Oh, and a yellow busload of deals at stores and restaurants, including a new promotion from Chipotle involving free burritos.
Here's the deal: If you're a teacher, faculty, or some other type of school staff member and can prove it with a school ID, Chipotle will give you a free burrito, burrito bowl, salad, or order of tacos when you buy another menu item, according to the company's website. The buy-one-get-one promotion is good from 3pm to close on May 3rd, or Teacher Appreciation Day, at Chipotle locations nationwide (but not online orders) with a limit of one freebie per eligible educator. It's the least they can do for the people who are, as Chipotle put it in a press release, "constantly working to cultivate a better world in the classroom."
