SALT LAKE CITY — Billboards along Interstate 15 are showing teachers some extra love on Valentine’s Day.

Thanks to donations, this work is growing. It comes at a time when teachers are going through a really tough time, with school staffing levels and finding enough substitute teachers.

Utah Parent Engagement Education is organizing a billboard campaign.

They’re still working on the final design, but they want it to look like a Valentine’s Day with the words “We love teachers!”

“I hope this shows them that there are parents and families who appreciate their work so much,” said Sissy Rasmussen of Utah’s Parent Involvement in Education. “It’s really one of those jobs that we take for granted because we just drop the kids off and at the end of the day, we pick them up.”

Currently, the information is placed on 11 digital billboards in Salt Lake City, Utah and Washington County. They are trying to find more billboards in Davis County.

“Most families love teachers,” Rasmussen said. “We want them to see this because we love you. We stand by you. We know it’s scary and hard, you just keep at it. We’re here for them.”

Messages to teachers will rotate on digital billboards on Valentine’s Day and the next day, and will focus on teachers’ time on the road.

In addition to the billboards, the group encourages Utah to send teachers thank you notes or emails.

They originally only had four billboards, but have now expanded to 11.

With more donations, they hope to increase the billboards.
