Teachers want love too!Teachers often go unappreciated, so why not give them something special this Valentine's Day? Think about a teacher you treasured as a child. Maybe there was a high school teacher who pressed you harder, never gave up on you, or saw something others missed. Was there a special sports coach, drama coach or piano teacher who impacted your life for the better?
Well, Write It Down, Share the Love!
If you could write a Valentine's note to this one special teacher in your life-what would you say? Why not write it RIGHT NOW (time's running out)! Even if this person has since passed away, put pen to paper anyway and share the story with your kids. Or see if you can find the teacher's mailing address or Facebook account! Here are some other ways to "show the love."
Grab a few friends and create a thoughtful (versus expensive) teacher thank-you gift this Valentine's Day!
Create the 'Gift of Time' by volunteering to spend time helping in the classroom.
Create a 'Love Bomb' this year; bombard your child's teacher, cafeteria worker, principal or janitor with a burst of Valentine/Thank You's on their door or even their car!
Meet the kids on the playground and create a cute and quick thumbprint heart card. Each child makes a heart and signs their name.
Get creative and pool your efforts for a 'Teacher Group Gift Basket', using what you know your teacher's favorite hobbies to be.
