Sea World says “Thank You” to teachers


Teachers have one of the most difficult jobs in the world. They are seldom thanked, and most definitely underpaid. With budget cuts and economic downturn teachers rarely have the tools they need to properly do their jobs, but somehow they manage. It’s with that in mind that Sea World is offering their Study Pass to any active teacher.

The program is in it’s 13th year and this year adds even more special treatment for teachers.
From the official press release:

SeaWorld Orlando thanks teachers by offering a “Study Pass” to all active and certified K-12 grade school instructors. It’s a free 2011 Fun Card allowing unlimited admission to SeaWorld Orlando now through year’s end, with no blackout dates.
For even more savings, until May 31, teachers can purchase up to six additional tickets at $20 off each admission, sharing the SeaWorld Orlando fun with family and friends.

The “Study Pass” is intended to be an inspiration, too. Whether it’s visiting Penguin Encounter to prepare for a classroom session on environmental issues in the southern hemisphere or riding Manta, the flying roller coaster, to help explain physics and gravity, the park’s experiences give teachers the unique opportunity to use their SeaWorld visit to help enhance their curriculum.
In fact, is a starting point for teachers to learn about all SeaWorld has to offer.

Getting the “Study Pass” is easy. Teachers simply bring their Florida teaching certificate, recent paystub and photo ID to any ticket window at SeaWorld Orlando’s front gate. Right then, they can purchase discounted admission for family and friends.
“Sharing marine life knowledge with students is one of our core values,” said Terry Prather, SeaWorld Orlando’s president. “At SeaWorld Orlando alone, more than 100,000 students pass through our camp and field trip programs every year. We know how important a strong educational foundation is for our youth and we want to thank teachers for their years of devotion and passion.”
