Teacher Appreciation Week starts today in the U.S. There are lots of ways to recognize the hard work that teachers do throughout the year. A heartfelt note from you and your child is always well-received. Focus on specific things the teacher has helped your child with, or a special memory of your child’s favorite part of her days in class.
Teachers spend, on average, $998 of their own money every year on school supplies. If you’d like to give a tangible gift, a gift card to help with those expenses would be much appreciated.
To foster a positive and productive relationship with your child’s teacher all year long, check out these articles from PBS Parents on building your parent-teacher partnership, and talking with teachers.
