Your DGB for today is to show a teacher some appreciation.
It’s Teacher Appreciation week all week long, but today, May 9th, is a day specifically dedicated to the educators who have impacted our lives. Teachers have the ability to shape the lives of our future generations. Not only do teachers educate, but teachers also help develop a passion for learning, direct career paths, and provide support, encouragement, counsel, and often protection for our most vulnerable. With the very real risk to education with 45’s appointment of Betsy DeVos, now more than ever, we need to show teachers we have their backs.
We are in no way trying to give you Pinterest worthy ideas, but we are offering you a gentle reminder that you should get in on this supporting of those who educate our youth. One quick and easy project is to get your children to write some thank you notes to their favorite teachers, then pick a dandelion or grab an apple to go with it, and DONE! The sentiment is there, the craft is free, and you’ve earned yourself some parenting brownie points. Support teachers because in times like these, we need education and a good support system more than ever.
