This week is Teacher Appreciation Week and here at EdTech we cannot imagine a more important time in history to say THANK YOU to our teachers. You are some of the most sacrificial, intentional, loving people on the planet and while we should say thank you every day, so often we just forget.
During this season of COVID-19 amidst a new world of online learning and many parents suddenly responsible for home schooling their kids, our appreciation of what you do all day, every day, is even more felt.
So today, we want you to know a few things about who you are in our lives.
Simple but not said often enough. Every single one of us has been shaped and molded by a teacher who cared, who invested, who shared a part of our journey with us.
We are not the same because of you.
We Appreciate You.
We recognize that you don’t just teach our children, you prepare them for life. You shape them to be people who make a positive impact in our world.
We recognize you for the positive impact you make in their lives.
Your sacrifices are seen.
We know that you give up evenings, weekends and time with your family to make sure papers are graded, lessons are prepared, conferences are attended that help you grow.
We see the extra work and it means a lot.
You deserve a break.
We know that this time of the year, as things are wrapping up and the school year is ending that you are tired. With everything as whacky as it is this year, even more tired than normal we’re guessing. We want to remind you to take care of yourself. Take a day at the spa when things open up. Go golfing. Do whatever it is you do to recharge.
We want you to take care of yourself.
What you do changes lives.
For so many of us, we remember that teacher who said that thing that made us believe we were important. Who taught us that lesson that we will never forget. Who helped chart the course of our lives because of your passion for what you were teaching.
We remember that your life has changed our lives.
As you read this, we hope that you feel appreciated. You are an incredible gift in our lives and we can’t thank you enough.
Have an amazing week.
