National Teacher Appreciation Day Through the Eyes of Students | Schools
Hiawatha schools celebrated National Teacher Appreciation Week at their schools last week. In honor of hard-working teachers and staff, I asked students for their anonymous feedback on what Teacher Appreciation Day means to them. Here are some of my favorite answers.
“To me, Teacher Appreciation Day is the day we all come together and give our teachers the attention and appreciation they need. Without them, many things would not be possible. »
“Teacher Appreciation Day means taking the time to thank and appreciate all the hard work that goes into the different things teachers do for us.”
“Thanks to the people who spend time and money making sure we know how to handle the real world while giving us insights to improve.”
I also asked students to describe something a teacher has done for them or for the class that they appreciate. Here are some of my favorite answers.
“They listened to me when I needed help. They have always been there for me, whether academically or emotionally. They understood what it was like to be a kid and understood that we don’t always get things the way we tell them to teach.
“Defend myself, talk to me, help me get out of anxiety-provoking situations.”
“What the teachers do that I appreciate is that they are always there for you and always ready to go out of their way to help you with their extra free time if you really need it. They are also highly valued because with recent teacher vacancies, they take the time out of their plan to replace other teachers, but still manage to get things done for their REAL classes.
Although not all students like to get up early, come to school and learn, it is obvious that the staff understands the students’ daily difficulties and tries to alleviate some of them. On behalf of all students at Hiawatha School, I would like to thank all of the teachers in our district. We appreciate you!
