I loved being in school. Especially elementary school! I had the greatest teachers-so many that I can’t even choose a favorite. I had some really amazing teachers in high school, too. Looking back, I wish I could have showed them when I was a kid how much I really appreciated them. Now I have a few great friends since childhood who grew up to be school teachers. I’m sure they are someone else’s favorites! Ms. Oswald, Ms. Oswald (Twin sisters who both became teachers, how fun is that!), and Mrs. Steiner have been friends of mine since we were little kiddos and now all three of them are elementary school teachers in Utah. They’re such great examples to their students and the kids just love them. Thank you so much for all that you do, you three! I hope you know how much I love you and cherish our friendship.
Teacher Appreciation Day is May 8th and it’s the perfect opportunity to let a teacher know how much you appreciate everything they do. These teachers go through so much for our kids and don’t get enough recognition for it. Teacher Appreciation Day is the one day set aside just for them. And I’m excited to pass on some fun ideas for you to show that special teacher just how much you care! These could also work for the last day of school, back to school, for the room mothers/teachers aids, etc.
