Lately I’ve been sleuthing around the interwebs for great printable teacher appreciation notes for kids. After all, Teacher Appreciation Week starts today! And ever since my son started preschool, I’ve been been struck anew by how much educators do to shape our children and our world.
And not just because they give me a few hours of precious free time — although that in itself makes me want to erect gold-plated statues in their honor.
I know teachers already get a lot of mugs and flowers, so this year I wanted to focus on giving words of appreciation…to the lovely men and women teaching my son his words.
