This month we celebrate Teacher Appreciation Month. In the United States, National Teacher Appreciation Month takes place for the entire month of May each year, but the majority of the festivities center around the first week of May. Teachers play a critical  role in educating and shaping our children.  They educate, innovate, encourage and support. Take the time to celebrate these real life superheroes.

The list should consist of wide-ranging statements that demonstrate a snapshot of what the student learned during the school year. The following are examples of “CAN-DO” statements.

May 02 May is Teacher Appreciation Month

Even though we hope and expect children to appreciate their teachers (and mothers) all year round, having a month dedicated to recognizing the hard work and passion teachers put forth each day is important. It makes teachers feel as though the students really are respectful and appreciative of everything teachers do for them on a daily basis.
