Teacher Appreciation Week 2023

Updated: May 8, 2023

Check out the list of local businesses offering discounts and promotions

In anticipation of Teacher Appreciation Week, May 8-12, 2023, we reached out to local businesses in Baltimore and invited them to share what they are doing to celebrate our teachers. Below you can find a roundup of several great offers.

Teachers, we hope you take some time for yourself during Teacher Appreciation Week and enjoy these fantastic promotions from local businesses. Thank you for all that you do!

And for all of us not in the classroom, let’s take the time to thank the teachers in our lives for their hard work and dedication. Write them a note, bring them a special treat, or simply tell them how much they mean to you. And please pass along this post to them.


Fivex3, a strength training facility in Brewers Hill with a simple, no-nonsense approach to helping people get stronger, is owned by Emily and Diego Socolinsky. Emily is a former teacher in, and graduate of, Baltimore City Public Schools. They are great trainers and teachers and they are offering:

  • $325 for four introductory strength training sessions (a 10% discount) for new clients that are teachers;

  • 50% off the first month of membership for new members that are teachers;

    • Month-to-Month Membership: First Month $105 ($210 normally)

    • Six Month Membership: First Month $95 ($190 normally)

    • Yearly: First Month $85 ($170 normally)

I started going to Fivex3 in the Fall of 2021 and highly recommend strength training to everyone. I wrote about my journey with strength training here. Email to take advantage of these great offers!

I started going to the Loft while working in Baltimore City Public Schools. After a long day, nothing felt better than the sauna and cold plunge. It is a great full body reset.
