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! ⬇️


"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."

Mrs. Singh was my 12th grade IB anthropology teacher who quickly became my favorite teacher. She allowed me to express my ideas in class freely and supported peer collaboration. She also hosted the most cultural component classroom that I have seen within K-12 education. My favorite memory from that class is when we had to present and describe a crazy story from someone in our family tree, where I spoke about my grandfather from Morocco and his experience during the time of French imperialism."
