A Note of Appreciation

If you can read this...thank a teacher.
~author unknown



I've heard so much talk lately about end of the year teacher gifts.  What to give, how much to spend, etc. Now,  I like to give gifts as much as the next mom, I really do.  And even more importantly, my son loves to give his teacher little gifts throughout the year.  Sometimes it's something as little as a picture he has colored or a few flowers he has picked on his way to the bus stop.  But, I have to say, I think the most important thing you can give your child's teacher (especially if he/she is a good one!) is a heartfelt note of appreciation. A thank-you.   Some people say, well it's their job and they get paid, blah blah blah.  When I hear someone say that, it really makes me mad.  My son is at school seven hours a day....his teacher spends more time with him during the week than I do!  And, with only twenty days left of school, my son still continues to be excited to go every morning.  And, one other thing, he has learned a heck of a LOT of stuff this year!  So, I will  definately be sending in a note thanking my son's teacher on the last day of school.



This is a note I wrote last year.  I'm not the best writer that's for sure...but it's the thought that counts and I
wanted Mrs. Kurtz to know how much we appreciated her!

That is AWESOME! You're right (as a former teacher) a note like that means SOOOO much more than any gift. Mrs. Kurtz sounds like a fabulous teacher. :)

As a former teacher, I can tell you heartfelt notes are the best gifts of all.
