Crayola Helps us Thank a Teacher + Contest Info
We received the mentioned products in exchange for an honest review. The thoughts contained within this post are ours and may vary from the thoughts of others.
Some of my favorite people are teachers. This includes family, people who became like family and friends. This year as we venture into the realm of homeschooling our oldest son on a more serious note and have made it official with our school district it makes me aware that teaching is such an important job. The hours devoted to lesson planning, student care and then of course grading papers and tests is time consuming and people do not say thank you enough.

I wanted to let our boys know that while they will not attend the public school systems in our area, we have to show appreciation for local teachers including those we do not even know. I had some very influential teachers throughout my school years. One included a woman who challenged me to my innermost being. Miss Highland was always tough yet fair. She was classy, timeless and I will always cherish my year in her classroom in 2nd grade.
Prior to her I had a lovely and kind teacher named Mrs. Edwards who was like a parent to everyone in her class. I love bumping in to her in our small town and catching up; most recently at a Christmas bazaar for a local church where she was able to meet our oldest and see that one of her students had grown up.
Later on I had my own Mom as a teacher and the things I learned from her I have cherished and use daily. I not only learned from books but from hands on education that allowed me to be the Mom I am today. She taught me the most (no offense to any other teacher).
In college I never stepped foot on a campus but I learned a lot from my professors who were mostly in the legal field since I was in a Criminal Justice program. They taught me to be fair and just, while still allowing me to learn on my own and make mistakes. My favorite professor was a crime scene photographer and I learned camera basics that I utilize every day on this very blog.
So with all of this being said– Thank a teacher y’all. They go through the toughest of times on a daily basis. Thank the public school teacher, the private school teacher, the professors and of course the homeschooling teachers too.
