As something constructive to do in this national day of mourning regarding the Connecticut shootings, we’d like to share with you something constructive you can do in memoriam:
In our rushed world, we rarely have an opportunity to show our appreciation for those who spend 6 hours a day with our children. Those who give of their time and brilliant minds to help our own children to stay safe, comfortable, loved and to help them grow.
On Monday, December 17, 2012, take a moment and thank a teacher. Send her an email, a card, a bouquet of flowers. Create a “thank you” bulletin board. Offer to help from home. Make time to volunteer in the classroom.
Take a few minutes in your day and connect with your favorite teacher, or your child’s teacher. It’s simple; just tell him or her “thank you.”
If you have a blog or are in the media, please visit http://julieverse.com/thank-a-teacher-day-december-17-2012 for more information on how you can participate.
