The first week of May has been dubbed Teacher Appreciation Week. This is the week where we celebrate the teachers who work tirelessly with our children – help them to learn how to read, write, express themselves artistically, musically…
Do you remember your favorite teacher of all time? I was lucky and had a few that made an impression. One that I remember very well was Mr. Katz from high school Biology. He made that class interesting – so interesting that I signed up for Marine Biology the next semester, which included classes seeping into two weeks of my summer vacation! He infused humor into the curriculum which made learning much more fun.
Mrs. Beltrami – high school English. I should have never admitted that I didn’t fully understand the foreshadowing in this one book that we were reading. From that day forward she called on ME to point out the foreshadowing in almost every novel we read. To this day, I’ll find foreshadowing in everything…
Looking for some cool gift ideas for the teachers in your life?
- Flowers or maybe a cool plant that your teacher can keep in their classroom
- Handwritten thank you notes, to me, mean so much! Handwrite one from you and one from your child. I am sure your teacher wants to know how much you appreciate them as well as how much your child does!
- Sweet treats are always welcome, but maybe try to keep it on the healthier side with a fruit basket (some of the fruit can be dipped in chocolate 😉
- Gift cards to Target, bookstores, a local restaurant
Please share any gift ideas below!
