This week is Teacher Appreciation Week. I hope everyone that has children in school shows appreciation to your child’s teachers. They work their butts off for next to nothing in pay. They use their own money a lot of the time to fund projects and things for the class and never ask the parent for a cent.
My 3 children while growing up, have had teachers that left lasting impression on their lives. They talk about them when they get together and talk about growing up. The smiles on their faces shows me these teachers did there jobs so well and I could not thank them enough. It makes me proud when my kids are still in touch with there favorite teachers and I am still in touch with some of them as well. This is an amazing bond that I will cherish forever.
Every year I made sure that these teachers were well taken care of. I wish I could have done more. But if your searching for something to do for your teacher I’m going to list some ideas for you with some pictures. Pinterest is a great place to find ideas. But here are my favorites.
So don’t forget your teacher this week. It does not need to be much. Just show you appreciate them. Below are some other ideas you can do for them.
*Bring your teacher a flower
*Write them a letter letting them know how much the have impacted your life this year
*Buy them some school supplies they are running low on
*Treat your teacher to there favorite beverage or snack
*Gift cards are always best to a restaurant, store, teacher store or massage
*Each day donate a book to the class.
