Friday 17th May 2013 is national Thank A Teacher Day. Why not show your teacher how much you appreciate their help with a lovely card from the fantastic selection at Hallmark?
It’s scary to look back over my school days, I have teachers who were awesome and instilled wisdom and great memories – then there are teachers I would quite happily forget about. Teachers can easily be overlooked, which is such a shame as they contribute a lot to the people we all become, what we choose to be ‘when we grow up’ and strive for the best for us.
My ears still ring with ‘Salve Puellae, Salve Magistra’ even 16 years on from my school days… that’s Latin for ‘Hello Girls, Hello Teacher’ for those who don’t know. Yes I was subjected to Latin, amongst French and German! I had some great times at school and some fantastic memories that I still cherish. Facebook is a great way to keep up to date with old school buddies and it’s great to hear all the gossip from the big school.
Being a parent at the school gates can sometimes be a daunting prospect and I still feel myself cowering and whispering ‘Mrs…. ‘ when I need to speak with Liv’s teacher. I still have the same respect for teachers even now, when I am no longer on the receiving end of detention or chewing gum duty.
Each year, the Pearson Teaching Awards give recognition to fantastic teachers across the UK, that been nominated for the esteemed awards by their very own students. The results of the awards will be announced on May 17th, also known as Thank a Teacher Day, and although not every teacher will be lucky enough to win a prize we think all of them are deserving of our gratitude! To help give thanks to wonderful teachers everywhere, the personalised greeting cards specialist Hallmark have created this beautiful card to share with a special teacher that you may know.
