3 Ways to Thank Our Teachers on National Teacher Day
On May 5th, Let’s Honor Our Nation’s Unsung Heroes
Teachers are our nation’s unsung heroes who provide the strong foundation of our society. They are tasked with teaching and molding our children to become productive and responsible members of society, arming them with knowledge and values that will help shape their future.
Long hours of lectures, consultations, preparing for lessons, and grading papers are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to a teacher’s work. Without being ordered to or compensated for it, teachers go the extra mile by keeping tabs about students’ needs, providing support and understanding. They adjust their styles to ensure that each student absorbs the lessons and no one gets left behind.
May 5th is National Teacher Day in our country, the perfect occasion to express our love and respect for these selfless individuals who embraced the vocation of educating the future leaders of our nation, carrying out their roles to the best of their abilities despite the many challenges confronting them.
Why Are Teachers Important?
Teachers play a vital role in our nation’s growth and development. Here are the three main reasons why civilizations won’t prosper and won’t exist without teachers.
- They provide guidance.
Teachers are often considered as our children’s second parents. They provide sound advice when it comes to academics and even issues affecting the students’ personal lives. They help steer our children in the right direction.
- They educate.
Teaching is a valuable profession that not all people are capable of doing. Teachers spend years in school to master the art of imparting essential learning to their students. They also make sure that these lessons are applied as their students become adult members of their community and society.
- They show dedication.
Because teachers are committed to their profession, they are dedicated to honing their students’ skills and abilities to maximize their potentials. They give encouragement and support to boost their students’ confidence.
3 Ways to Thank Teachers
Many folks say that teaching is a noble but thankless profession. Often overworked and underpaid, a teacher does not cease working even when the school dismissal bell rings. They continue working by preparing their lesson plans and doing other teaching chores because they love what they do and because they care about their students’ welfare.
On National Teacher Day, express your gratitude to your children’s teachers by doing any or some of the following suggestions:
- Say thank you.
When you drop off your child to school, you can drop by your kid’s homeroom and have a friendly chat with their teacher just to express gratitude for their hard work.
- Gift them with supplies.
Providing extra school supplies for your child’s teacher is a simple way to help them with their work. You can gift them with permanent markers, colored papers, scissors, or notebooks. These materials will surely help them. Ask your child what type of supplies their teacher normally uses in class to give you an idea of what to buy.
- Get involved.
Attend Parent-Teacher Association and school board meetings to get an idea about the challenges that teachers are facing in your district. Advocate for their rights to ensure that they receive proper compensation for the work that they’re doing. Their devotion to their work is priceless, but it helps if they do it under the best conditions just the same.
