How to Thank a Teacher

I found this article in my mailbox the other day, from The Tech Edvocate. This has been such a trying time for parents, students, and our teachers. Check out these great ways to say thank you that anyone can do:

  1. I reread your post and ;laughed aloud at :”happy techie face” and “go away face.” The spirit of Teacher Appreciation Week is an honorable one. Of course, teachers want greater salaries and benefits, but they also want to be appreciated for their efforts.

  2. I’ve had many great teachers who helped me move forward in my engineering career as well as spawning my interests and passions. We should certainly not forget to thank our teachers.
