I know I do. We are finally in the last leg of kindergarten around here, and let me tell you, what a year it's been. I can remember the first day of school like it was yesterday. I'm not sure who was more anxious, my then 4 1/2 year old or me.
But then SHE opened the door.
Almost instantly, when Stephanie waved the lot of us nervous and excited parents and kids inside, I knew everything was going to be fine. What is it about good teachers that has a way of calming the soul? Is it their smiles? The firm, sweetness of their voices?
I'm a little late, but this week is Teacher Appreciation Week. I never even knew such a thing existed but as far as I'm concerned, they deserve an appreciation month. My son's teacher, a woman who nurtures, protects, and shepherds twenty-two 5 and 6 year olds all day is a hero by any other name. Thank you, Stephanie! Off to get a Starbucks gift card.
Do you love your kid's teacher? Tell us about her or him!
