Did you know that it's officially teacher appreciation week?
I know I'm biased because I'm a teacher but teachers are some of the most INCREDIBLE people in the world!
Had it not been for the amazing teachers in my life, I wouldn't be where I am today.
When I was in primary school there was an amazing teacher who I'll never forget because she saw potential in me that no other teacher saw. She encouraged me to read more, study more and work harder so that I could get better grades. At that time, I had no idea that years later the lessons she taught me would impact me in so many ways and I hope that as I teach, I'll help other children in the same way she helped me.
So, here's to the teachers, the educators, the support staff, the motivators and the leaders who make a difference in the lives of children and young people every single day of their lives.
Without them, your child might not be as bright, as happy or as impassioned as they are about their learning.
This week, take a moment or two to show your appreciation for the teachers around you.
Happy teacher appreciation week!
