TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK

May 8th - May 12th  This week honors those hard working, patient and understanding people whom we entrust our children to. Teachers help shape our kids in a positive direction, and affect who they are and who they become.

 

Thank you teachers for all you do!

 

 

Please see the list of ideas below on ways to express your appreciation for all their hard work!

1. Teacher Appreciation: Thank Them

The simple spoken words of “Thank you” can go a long way. Teachers are very grateful to feel that their work is valued and appreciated. Try a simple thank you next time you see your child’s teacher, or better yet, write them a thank you card.

2. Send in a Treat

Next time you have extra baked goods, wrap them up and send them in with your child to give to their teacher. This little extra treat can really make a teachers day.

3. Volunteer Inside the Classroom

 Every teacher can use some help in their classroom. Even if you think you are too busy with your work and home schedule all you really have to do is take an hour or so out of your day once a month to show that you care. And research has proved that it helps your child succeed in school. So, it’s a win-win situation!

4. Text or Send an E-mail

Technology makes it so easy these days to show that you are thinking about someone. As soon as you have a thought, you can simply send a quick text or email and instantly the other person can know that you are thinking of them. Try sending a quick note thanking them for a skill your child learned, or the wonderful craft your child brought home. Anything to show them that their work is valued and that you have noticed.

5. Bring in Supplies

Teachers are always running out of classroom supplies. Usually when this happens they have to use their own money to pay for them. Ask the teacher what they are running out of, and offer to send some more in. They will appreciate it more than you know.

6. Give a Gift Card

One of the best gifts that you can give a teacher is a gift card. This simple and cheap gift is a great way to show a teacher that you care.

7. Boast about Them

Who doesn’t like it when someone brags about them? Anytime that you see an opportunity to boast about your child’s teachers to another teacher, school staff member, or even the Director, then do it. Teachers spend all of their day in the classroom and many times no one realizes how great they are! Just a little shout out is all you need to do to make your child’s teacher happy.

8. Be an Active Parent

Be involved in everything that your child does that has to do with their education, your child’s teacher will notice and be grateful. Listen to them, read at night, show up to every parent-teacher conference and ask questions. By doing so, you’re showing your child’s teacher that you know that their job is important and you’re taking the time to reinforce whatever they have learned in school, at home.

9. Show them Respect

This is by far the best way to make a teacher happy. When you show your child that you respect their teacher, then so will they. If a child sees you talking bad about their teacher to other people, then they will think that you do not respect them, and in turn they will not. Respect is an essential component of teaching and learning in the classroom. So make sure to always show them the respect that they deserve.

As teachers, we can appreciate this list. Most teachers are parents themselves and sometimes forget how important their job really is. At the end of day, the best way to keep a teacher happy is to let them do their job, show them they are valued with a simple thank you, and respect them for who they are and what they are doing for your child.
