Thank You Teacher – 7 Reasons To Be Grateful

Thank You Teacher – 7 Reasons To Be Grateful

Harry has just finished his first year in Nursery Class.  On the last day of term I sent him in with a card and a box of chocolates for Teacher.  But I feel a £2 box of Dairy Milk and a piece of paper doesn’t really convey all the things I was grateful for over the last school year.   So this is my heartfelt official thanks and here are the 7 reasons why:

  1. Thank you for putting up with him taking everything (and I mean everything) off when he went to the toilet for a poo. Thankfully he had grown out of it by the Xmas.
  2. Thank you for doing up his trainers “really tightly”. He can never have them tight enough. It drives me nuts, I can only imagine what it does to you when you have 24 other children to cope with.
  3. Thank you for persevering with him when he insists on having the zip on his coat done all the way up to the top – whatever the weather.
  4. Thank you for turning a blind eye when he untucks his t-shirt.  No matter how often his Daddy tucks it in and asks him not too, it is just something that he is going to do.  Some battles are just not worth having.
  5. Thank you for all your efforts encouraging him to do makey-doo.  It is commendable even though it is fruitless.
  6. Thank you for re-adjusting his socks each time they twisted, albeit slightly.  I know he is very particular about his socks being just right.
  7. Thank you for allowing him to bring in 100+ toys over the school year.  And more importantly, ensuring the 100+ toys made it home every evening.

What do you think hey?  Did a box of chocolates get all of that across?

    Teachers don’t always get the credit they deserve.
    This was a lovely read 😊

      Thanks Kim. They are such a massive influence on their life. Very important (and lucky) to get ones that match your own value set and treat your child as an individual. I take my hat off to them.
