Appreciation ALL Around

I recently read an editorial in the local paper about telling teachers they have made a difference on Teacher Appreciation Day and/or week.  While I agree with the author to some extent, I often find myself wondering how many students, families, and/or parents I have thanked for making a difference. We ALL like to be appreciated and thanked for our hard work.

Parents and families are JUST as important as teachers and must also be thanked and appreciated.

Think about a parent and/or family that has really made a difference in your classroom this year.  Take a moment to thank them.  Perhaps invite them in for an Appreciation or Recognition Night.

One thought on “Appreciation ALL Around”

  1. That is a great idea. Parents might begin to feel more comfortable with the teacher and want to be more involved in their child’s classroom and education.
