This February, join us in a celebration of our unwavering love for math, as we unveil the stories behind why our team is head over heels for math education.
This year, Teacher Appreciation Week is being celebrated from Monday, May 8th - Friday, May 12th. We work alongside our students’ teachers throughout the year to fill in gaps and provide support - and we couldn’t be more appreciative of their efforts. Let’s shower our teachers with all of the appreciation they can stand!
Write a Thank You Card or Letter to Your Child’s Favorite Teacher
This is a great activity for you and your child! Use our template or one of the thousands available online to create a Thank You Card and let your teacher know they’re appreciated. You might even consider reaching out to past teachers through email or Facebook!
Nominate your Child’s Favorite Teacher for an Award
During Teacher Appreciation Week, there are tons of opportunities to nominate teachers for awards, gift baskets, and more! Check out this giveaway from SignUpGenius, and make sure to visit our Facebook and Instagram pages from 5/8-5/12 to nominate your teacher for a special Mathnasium giveaway.
Tell Stories About Your Favorite Teacher
Hold a family story time and talk about your time in school - and the teachers who helped you succeed! Your kids will love to learn more about your childhood, and this can be a great bonding opportunity.
Students can also ask Mathnasium staff about their favorite teachers this week (or any week, we love to talk about them!) during their visits. We’ve shared a couple down below as well! ⬇️
"Mr Kauffman at Hayfield Secondary School was my 10th grade algebra II teacher and he was an amazing mentor in addition to teaching the subject matter in a way that clicked person to person. He went out of his way to stay after school, and work with students during lunch to give each kid the chance at grasping concepts at their own pace."

"Ms. Ortiz is one of my favorite and most fabulous teachers. She teaches at Piper High School in Sunrise, FL. Ms. Ortiz taught English and a college course, Teaching Diverse Population, that I had the privilege of taking with her. But teaching didn't just stop at the bell or in the classroom. You could always stop her in the halls or find her at community events. She was one of the most engaged teachers I have ever had. Her classroom was a safe space for ALL students past, present, and future. She often attends her past students college graduations and shows up for us long after graduation. She taught me that passion is more important than money and always encouraged me to believe in myself when I would often fall short. She inspires me to make a difference and be a better person to this day."
