Chalk Talk: Teacher Appreciation
Believe it or not, teachers look forward to the summer break just as much as students do. They have worked hard all year to provide the best education possible for your child and all the other children in their class. Though the end of the year can be chaotic with graduations, pool parties, and planning vacation trips, it wouldn’t hurt to let your child’s teacher know how much you appreciate their hard work all year long. Big expensive gifts are not necessary. The most meaningful gifts, to teachers, come from the heart of the person giving thanks. A simple card or note handed to the teacher on the last day of school would work. Younger children can draw a picture for the teacher and older students can write a letter to the teacher reminiscing about the year or listing the non-educational life lessons that were taught. If nothing else, just saying thank you would mean a lot to any teacher.
