This first week in May is teacher appreciation week. I am from a family of teachers and with two kids in school I know just how hard these special people work during the school day and after hours. As a daughter of two teachers this is exactly how I knew I didn’t want to be a teacher. I love children and I appreciate teachers who encourage parent involvement in the classroom, but I would never want their job. With so much pressure to get children to perform well on tests and meet standards it is a demanding jobs. Without a doubt it is a sometimes under appreciated underpaid position. Teachers have one of the toughest jobs I know.
Every child learns differently and the beauty of a good teacher is that they find ways to allow our children thrive. There is no big expense account to fund making learning fun and hands on. They spend lots of their own money on extras to make our children’s learning more fun. Learning Should be fun, hands on and challenging. Thank You to all the teachers out there working hard to make a difference. What teacher made an impact on your life as a young learner? I would love to hear about it.
Here are some of my favorite gift ideas if you want to express your gratitude for your child’s teacher.
