To All of Our Teachers, Thank You!

“Teachers can change lives with just the right mix of chalk and challenges.”
-Joyce Meyer

This year, Teacher Appreciation Week is being celebrated from Monday, May 6th - Friday, May 10th. 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!

3 Small Ways to Show Your Appreciation

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!

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. Emswiler was my 6th grade teacher and he was the BEST! You could tell he was so passionate about his students and really wanted them to succeed. For me specifically, he really encouraged me to try to be the best I could be, and noticed I was at an advanced reading level. His wife was a 1st grade teacher at the same school and he asked if I would be interested in going to her class every few days to help run their reading time! I did and it was AWESOME. I still have a love of reading as well as public speaking (I ended up doing competitive speech in both high school and college) and I really still do attribute this to him. The fact that he found ways to build confidence in his students and build a foundation for future success was so inspiring, because of him I also try to do this with our students as well!"

"Mr Dr Warne was my favorite teacher! He was fantastic to work for, he taught algebra and was incredibly positive when it came to teaching. One of his big goals was to use theatre to introduce math to students and using visuals to explain concepts. My favorite memory is walking down the quad and seeing him about to pass me, only to stop and realize he was holding a bunch of arrows (not the ones for archery) of various sizes. Apparently, he was about to teach a lesson on vectors and wanted visuals for the students!"
