It’s Teacher Appreciation Week! Our teachers do so much for us, and we mostly take it for granted. They do everything from helping us advance in life, to helping us maintain a passing G.P.A. (Grade Point Average). Honestly, school is like our second home, which brings the teachers to be our ‘second’ parents, and we RARELY say thank you. So there is one week, where we get to thank our teachers. From bringing them apples or candy, to even just saying thank you. Spoken from many wise teachers, the best thing they could get, would be from their students (us) to do good- to try in school. It feels good to most us when we get a good report card, right? Imagine how the teachers feel, knowing that they helped us do this?!
Overall, teachers are very caring people. A teacher must attend college for a minimum of four years. After that, they can become interns. An intern is when a teacher basically becomes an aid for another teacher, coming two or three times a week. After this time consuming work, they have to wait for a school to hire them as a teacher.
Teacher Appreciation was thought of by a massive campaign of parents, who were on the schools PTA. They decided teachers weren’t givien the attention nor the positive reinforcement they deserved. The parents then spread the word, throughought the school, and since then… as you can see, it has spread immensley. As it looks, the teachers enjoy it.
The gifts kids give the teachers vary. If you are in a quick and desperate search, you can buy them a classic red apple. But if you have spare time and money on you, you can buy them a box of chocloates with a card. And if you really are going to do it big, ask them what their favorite food or snack is, then get it for them.
So, after an explanation of what Teacher Appretitation Week is and how you can celebrate it, you know what to get for your teachers. Here at Howard Middle School, I have a favorite teacher… Her name is Ms. Speight, and she teach’s Language Arts. Ms. Speight is my favorite teacher because she is always in an exciting mood and it makes me motivated to see her so motivated… So, thanks Ms. Speight!!!
