Thank an Educator

The last full week before Thanksgiving was Educator Appreciation Week. My district plans a little something for each day. Some of it is a rip-off, like the day the board brought a basket of goodies to our lounge, and I didn't realize until the end of the day and there were only little bags of humongous goldfish graham crackers left.  Haha!

Well, moving on...
Our kids do these thank an educator card. And I had several from former students that said sort of the same thing - thanks for smiling at me; or waving at me; or saying hi to me in the hallway.

You know - that's such a little thing. But I try to notice when former students walk by and let them know. Maybe it's worth the effort. 

And the best was one I got today. It was from a former student that had moved to a different school. Yay, he's still around and working hard. I really appreciated hearing from him.


  1. It's nice to know they notice us just like we notice them. I love their hugs and notes and smiles.

  2. It is so great, isn't it? That's one thing I like about teaching 2nd grade - I get to see them for a couple more years! :)
