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! ⬇️
"My favorite teacher in high school was my band teacher Mr. Davis. I had him for several music classes throughout high school, and he was also in charge of our school's marching band so I spent a lot of time around him all four years. He was a very insightful, and thoughtful teacher, but was also very approachable as a person. Many of us would hang out in his office before school started just because he was fun to be around. A lot of my best memories from high school are tied up in band, and the environment that Mr. Davis helped create played a big role in that. "

"I loved my high school Calculus teacher, Mrs. Leighty. She made that normally very difficult course so fun! I always left her classroom smiling. I remember the day she introduced revolutions. She dressed in a costume and taught the lesson by cutting up fruit. It was hilarious."
