Teacher Appreciation Week 2022

May 3, 2022

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

Mr. Scott was my high school Woodshop teacher. I’ve taken many classes with him. The lessons he’s taught me for attention to detail helped me to excel in woodworking and as a person. When I thought I had sanded the wood enough he’d explain how I could always do more and when I did I began to see the outcome of giving that extra effort and the beauty of it.

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!

My favorite teacher is Dr. Black. He taught Psychology of the Child. He was a humorous old guy who loved sprinkling his personality in his lectures. He made me look forward to class every week because I knew it was going to be fun. He also took the time to get to know his students and was never a stranger on campus when he saw you. I will never forget the way he described positive reinforcement as "patting them on the head and giving them an m & m." This man walked around handing out m & ms during the lecture. Surprise, surprise that until this day I use that example all the time. It goes to show that someone who is invested in educating will stick with you years and years later!
