“Teachers encourage minds to think, hands to create, and hearts to love.”- Unknown

Dear Teachers,

You have a special, engraved place in our children’s hearts that sometimes is overlooked (unintentionally), but please never forget we are a united front of parents who will always advocate for you, even if we forget to verbalize how special you are. You have a tough job in the world today, especially right now while we all are still attempting to navigate this weird phase of life we call a pandemic. We NEED you to know how grateful we are for the impact you make in our children’s lives.

We are thankful for…

-Your kind heart

-Your patience

-Your perseverance

-Your long nights preparing for the next day

-Your time to text or call, whether it’s a positive or negative update on our children

-Your effort to keep challenging our children

-Your encouragement

-Your praise

-Your ability to never give up on our children

-Your compassion

-Your flexibility

-Your creativity

-Your ability to make learning fun

-Your humor

-Your constant steadiness

-Your smile

-Your tricks to make things stick

And most importantly we’re grateful for your love, your unconditional love. Because at the end of it all, we know our children will look back and remember the love you poured into them and that’s all that matters to us as moms. Thank you sweet teachers. We’re here for you, always cheering you on in your corner!
