Teacher’s Appreciation Week is celebrated during the first full week of May each year. There was a time not so long ago when teachers fought to be recognized and acknowledged for all they do. It started back in 1944, leading up to 1953 when Eleanor Roosevelt persuaded the 81st Congress to proclaim National Teacher Day that would serve the purpose of celebrating teachers across the nation. Finally in 1985, there was a whole week set aside solely for the intention of acknowledging teachers and all their hard work. Imagine how much better the world is because of teachers, especially gifted teachers who teach children with learning disabilities or limitations. Their role in this world is priceless.
Every single person, from all walks of life had to start somewhere in their learning process and its likely the most fundamental of these started with a teacher. This is the role of teachers – to help you start somewhere and be something, to help you start to envision your full potential. These are the basic fundamentals that are taught to us each year as we grow older creating the foundation from which we stem and grow and at some point begin to teach ourselves and make our own strides.
Our learning never stops but it always starts with a teacher.
As Teacher’s Day approaches, please take a moment to acknowledge the teacher in your life – whether from your past or your child’s present. Teacher’s Week will be in the first full week of May from the 2nd to the 6th.
Thank a teacher with a note, a card, a red apple dipped in chocolate or purchase a gift certificate for a spa service that will help to make their week complete.
Another option as a teacher’s gift would be to include a neck and shoulder massage or foot reflexology massage at any teachers’ event you are having this year. Choose an area to set up some our professional massage chairs and a time slot to give chair massage in 15 minute increments to the teachers you celebrate.
