Scooter's Coffee is thanking Chattanooga-area educators with free coffee on Tuesday, which the chain has dubbed "Teacher Appreciation Day."

Teachers who show a valid ID will receive a free drink of any size to celebrate them and the back-to-school season.

"Teachers are inspirations, and they often go beyond the call of duty. For example, teachers spent an average of $745 of their own money on school supplies during the 2019-2020 school year, according to," said media liaison Kristen Crawford in a news release.

"Teachers emulate values that we are committed to practicing every day at Scooter's Coffee: integrity, love, humility and courage," Crawford said. "We thank teachers in our communities for their leadership, courage and flexibility, especially throughout the pandemic as they quickly adapted to online teaching. As they look toward being back in the classroom, we wish them a great start to the new school year."
