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 will celebrate its annual Teacher Hero Day on Wednesday, Dec. 27 at all 130-plus locations, which are mostly in the Southeastern U.S.

So, teachers, as you savor the sweet, sweet freedom of your winter 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 from 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.
