ExxonMobil has a longstanding commitment to supporting education worldwide. We believe great teachers are critical to student success, particularly in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, ExxonMobil thanks teachers across the country for their hard work and dedication - today and every day of the year. We extend a special thank you to those teachers who have inspired ExxonMobil employees and to those inspiring the next generation of STEM students and engineers. Join us in thanking a teacher making a difference in the classroom by using this hashtag on social media: #ThankATeacher or #EMyTeacher.
