Teacher Appreciation Week 2022

May 3, 2022 | Location Columbia

Teacher Appreciation Week is May 2nd - 6th this year!

Teacher Appreciation Week (the first full week in May) is a time to honor teachers and recognize the lasting contributions they make to our lives. Here at Mathnasium, we champion that cause and we want to send our local teachers all of the appreciation they can stand!

We work alongside your students’ teachers throughout the year to fill in gaps and provide support for your students where it’s needed. We’re always amazed by the resourcefulness we see from teachers as they go above and beyond to engage with all of their students!

We’ll be celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week at Mathnasium by decorating Teacher Appreciation cards, sharing stories about our favorite teachers, and working with our local schools to provide some gift baskets and other treats to the teachers who have gone above and beyond this year. And you can help!

Decorate a Teacher Appreciation Card

Everybody enjoys hearing that they’re appreciated, and a card or a note is a great way to share your appreciation so that it can be revisited and remembered throughout the year. Mathnasium students are able to decorate a Teacher Appreciation Card during their visit, or you can print this one out and decorate it at home!

Learn More About Our Favorite Teachers

My favorite teacher is Mrs. Akers, my 11th and 12th grade English teacher. In Mrs. Akers' class we had a funeral for Beowulf, a dramatization on our high school stage of a Greek play, and more laughs than I can count. Mrs. Akers was an eccentric and engaging teacher that made English come alive off of the page! There are two things I will never forget about my classes with Mrs. Akers. First, she used to tell us that she wanted us to be such independent learners that if she dropped dead in the classroom, we'd cover her with a sheet and keep learning; thankfully we never had to do that! Second, Mrs. Akers had a unique accent, one that we immortalized on a t-shirt that our entire class wore to the AP English exam; "Abandon all hope all ye who enter here!"
-Rachel Meenattoor, Center Director

My favorite teacher is Mr. Wiegand! He taught History and Drama at my High School during my Junior and Senior years. Not only did he have a talent for making history interesting and exciting (thanks to him, I have enough dual enrollment history credits to confuse all of my college math/engineering advisors), he also took the time to mentor students and talk to us about real-life topics. His wife actually hired me at my first job!
-Marissa Shaffer, Marketing Coordinator

My favorite teacher is Mrs. Baldwin, 5th grade, Del Dayo Elementary. She was the teacher who influenced my love of reading and encouraged perspective. I was a very deep thinker, even at that young age, and I had questions about things, situations and why people did what they did. One of the many books she made us read was Where The Red Fern Grows. I always understood the relationship between animals and humans because I grew up on a ranch, but this book taught me about the highest form of love which is sacrifice and selflessness. That book was deeper than a relationship you have with your animal and intuitively I knew that. I remember her sitting with me and teaching me about symbolism and how it is everything we see, touch, and hear after school one day and I will never forget her calm, graceful ways of talking. After that 5th grade experience, I never read the same, thought the same or perceived things based on an outer shell. Mrs. Baldwin taught me to dive deeper with my thoughts and perceptions. Best teacher ever!
