and give to a teacher who teachers from the heart!
One thank you doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of how much you are appreciated. I know that you spend hours lesson planning, and preparing and organizing materials. I know that you take time out of your day to mentor other teachers, read books that will help you grow, attend staff meetings, grade level team meetings, PLCs, and IEPs -most of which take place during your few minutes of prep.
However, more important than all of those tasks, is the time you put in building relationships with the children in your building. We are all in this together and I know you recognize that all the kids are "our kids". Sometimes that means helping a student from another class when he is having a meltdown, or when you find him crying outside of the bathroom. Sometimes it means adding another teacher's class to your own, or covering a lunch or recess duty so they can attend to a student.
You see, the content you teach is important, but the time that you put into building up our young people, giving them the strength and courage to try, and the feedback to learn from mistakes is your most important work. The best teachers, teachers like you, teach from the heart.
