Thanksgiving for Teachers

This Thanksgiving we'd like to say we're thankful for teachers.

Teacher Appreciation during Thanksgiving!

Thankful for Teachers

With Thanksgiving around the corner, I want to take a moment and reflect on you – teacher.
  • I’m thankful for teachers because it was a 3rd-grade teacher (sweet, little, old Irish Catholic superstar!) who taught me adults are role models for compassion and caring.
  • I’m thankful for teachers because it was a substitute teacher back in 7th grade who taught me the value of reading as a means to expand my world.
  • I’m thankful for teachers because it was a 10th-grade social studies teacher/coach who taught me the value of hard work in and out of the classroom.
  • I’m thankful for teachers because it was a reading-block college professor who taught me the value of theory and research.
  • I’m thankful for teachers because it was a graduate level professor who taught me that successful teaching begins with the lesson plan and ends with the heart.
  • I’m thankful for teachers because it was a 4th-grade computer teacher who is my dad.
  • I’m thankful for you because you are a teacher. And the world doesn’t show you appreciation through riches. Schools often forget to say thanks because of the pressures of test scores. Students often can’t show you appreciation because of their own developmental challenges.
  • I’m thankful for you because you are a life changer, a mind shaper, and a future maker.
You are a teacher, and this Thanksgiving, I give thanks for you.
