I am not a teacher, I am not cut out to be one and seriously admire those that do it. I believe that being a teacher is one of the most important things ever because it is through all the things you do that the kids you teach get shaped into the adults they are to become. The dedication that you have to give to be a teacher is awesome, from early mornings to late evenings, math, English, science & social studies lesson plans, field trips and all the other extras. Then add in the time you actually spend in the class room teaching, understanding your students, helping them through subjects they struggle with.
I will tell you that I have a few friends that are teachers and I am daily amazed by how patient, kind and caring they really are. Teacher appreciation week was last week but in my opinion our teachers deserve to be showed they are appreciated more then just that one week but instead the whole year through. I know that personally my kids teacher goes above and beyond and even started a basketball team for the school this year so that the kids would have something to do.
I am proud to support our teachers in anyway possible even if it is just a card letting them know how much I appreciate the work they are doing to help shape my children. How do you show your child’s teacher appreciation?
