Hey, did you know that today is Teacher’s Appreciation Day? I have always said that teachers have one of the hardest jobs there is. I have been volunteering in both of my kids classrooms for years now! My oldest son is a freshman and while I don’t volunteer in his class anymore (because he would never be caught dead), I have been volunteering since he was in kindergarten – and that’s a long time! I have literally volunteered every year since then. Guys, that was 10 years ago!
Having spent so much time in the different classrooms over the years, I have seen what goes on first hand, I can personally attest to the fact that it’s NOT easy. Between super long days (sometimes they stay until 6 or 7 pm making photo copies for the next day), difficult kids, deadlines, standardized testing prep and actually teaching the required curriculum – I don’t know how some of them do it. Seriously.
But today, May 7th, is a day to celebrate all the teachers out there and all that they do for our kids. Since it’s Teacher’s Appreciation Day, I wanted to send in a little something to my son’s 5th grade teacher. I feel that it’s important to let all teachers know how appreciated they are.
