Teacher Appreciation Week is upon us and while many overlook it and think that celebrating teachers is not necessary, let me tell you, it is. I have been teaching now for 18 years, and while it’s one of the most rewarding jobs have I have ever held, it is also one the most difficult. While I don’t always love the time I have to sacrifice to do the job the way it should be done, I do love making lasting relationships with colleagues and students, and I do love to watch the students grow as learners and mature as future citizens.
I don’t want to use this forum to go on and on about how little teachers are respected by students and parents, politicians and communities, basically everybody, but I instead want to simply say, that honoring teachers should not be option. In fact, it is the least we can do (yes, I honor ALL of my children’s teachers). So stop what you’re doing and take a look at some affordable gift ideas you can celebrate the teachers this week (and always)!
Teachers like STUFF and GIFT CARDS!
HERE ARE SOME ITEMS THAT WILL MAKE ANY TEACHER SMILE THIS WEEK!
