Teacher Appreciation Week – 2014

Posted on: Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

Teacher Appreciation week is May 5th- May 9th.  Encourage your kids to say thank you to a teacher that made a difference.  A note, drawing or a hug is all that it would take to make a special teacher’s day.

Indulge me, please, because I would like to repeat my all time favorite thank you.  In the district where I teach, the kids in middle school are given the assignment to write a letter to their favorite teacher.  Many years ago my dear friend and colleague, received a letter from a student that she had taught when he was in third grade.  His letter has been hanging on her bulletin board for 15 years.
One month ago a young man arrived at our building for substitute duty.  One look at him was all it took.  The third grade, letter writing student, was all grown up.  He has become a teacher!  What a tribute, not just to my friend, but to all the teachers that have ever touched his life.

This year when you are encouraging your kids to draw a picture, write a note, send an email, or simply give a hug to his/her teacher, please do one more thing.  Ask the kids to consider becoming a teacher when they grow up.
