As teachers, Jill and I understand how a simple thank you can brighten a teacher’s day. As cliché as it sounds, something as simple as an apple from a student is such a wonderful way to start a day. It’s so nice to know that as a child started his or her day, one thought was finding a way to show a teacher they care. Of course, it doesn’t have to be an object we are given, a big smile or hug as a child enters the class can be just as meaningful! Because we know the amount of energy a teacher puts into each day, we like to find small ways to help our children’s teachers know that we appreciate them. This week we put together a small treat that is perfect for this time of year.
To create our simple gifts, we pulled together a few small items we knew teachers could use. As it gets colder and recess duty gets windier, ChapStick is a must so we made sure to include this. Chocolate is always a nice surprise in the morning and we also added gum. The possibilities are endless; we just wanted to make sure the items we included would be used. We used small treat bags we purchased in the party supply section and printed off these gift tags: Chalkboard Thank You Labels
. We stuffed the bags and attached the tags for a simple thank you gift.
Teachers sometimes feel unappreciated and anything we can do to help our children’s teachers understand how important they are is worth our time. Teachers are so seldom recognized for all they do. We recently discovered that Chevy is a company that understands this in a big way and wants to express their gratitude by offering an Educator Discount that never takes a summer break. This discount is available to all school employees.
I know we would want to apply the Chevy Educator’s discount to the Equinox or the Malibu! Find out more about this discount here: Chevrolet’s Educator Discount
