Listen up, teachers. You spend countless hours grading papers, drafting lesson plans and generally putting up with our society’s very energetic and strong-willed children.

At the very least, you deserve some free Mexican food.

Tijuana Flats has your back. The casual Tex-Mex restaurant chain announced on its Facebook page that Wednesday, Dec. 28 is Teacher Hero Day at all 120 locations, which are mostly in the southeastern U.S.

“All teachers enjoy a free entree on us,” it said.

So, teachers, as you’re still savoring the sweet, sweet freedom of your winter holiday break, it’s time for a pop quiz: Do you want burritos, enchiladas or quesadillas? Tacos, perhaps? Chimichangas?

What you’ll need is a teacher ID or pay stub showing proof of employment with a school system. Home-school teachers, teacher’s aides and preschool teachers can get in on the deal as well.

Tijuana Flats has locations throughout Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, and Indiana.
