As we continue Teacher Appreciation Week, keep these tips in mind! Author Diane Hodges says that praise for your child's teacher should be timely, sincere, specific, and positive. Find a teacher who deserves a compliment, and share your appreciation with him or her. Just a bit of heartfelt thanks goes a long way. Thank you for supporting our teachers!
As we continue to celebrate and recognize our teachers during National Teacher Appreciation Week, remember Henry Adams' assertion that a teacher affects eternity. They can never tell where their influence stops. Thank a teacher this week!
