Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!
I've wanted to be a teacher ever since I first met Mrs. Rathbun when I was in grade Primary (Kindergarten to most of you).
I can remember every elementary teacher I ever had, and they all taught me important life lessons.
My grade one teacher was Mrs. Maxwell. I LOVED her. She hatched chicks in our class, it was awesome. I'll never forget seeing her hold the eggs up to the projector light so we could see the growth of the chicks inside the eggs.
What was truly surreal was during my first year as a certified teacher I got to be a substitute teacher in her class. It was SOO weird to be in her room not as a student but as a colleague.
Here are three reasons why I am thankful for educators:
- Teachers made me want to follow in their footsteps.
- Teachers are some of the most loving and knowledgeable people I know.
- Teachers love to share ideas to make each other better!
