It's no secret that teachers and nurses have two of the toughest jobs.

And to thank them for their dedication, some restaurants are showing educators and nurses a little love.

Sunday is National Nurses Day and the start of National Nurses Week, which goes through May 12.

Teacher Appreciation Week kicks off Monday, but the biggest day for educators is Tuesday, which is Teacher Appreciation Day.
