This is it – right here.
This seemingly simple note sums up a year of hard work and dedication that many teachers give each of their students. For all the creative ideas, the fun activities, the countless hours of unpaid work, the colorful classroom decorations and everything else I tried to provide, this student learned the ONE lesson I truly wanted to teach: To never give up on yourself. How amazing is that? I honestly don’t think I could have asked for a better end of the year gift.
Don’t forget to thank a teacher. A little really does go a long way!
