"I love all my teachers, and I appreciate them more than they’ll ever know." 

Monday, May 4, 2020

My teachers all have done so much for me, and I am so grateful for them. One of the many things that they’ve done for me is that they’ve always been there for me. Whatever it is, my teachers are always willing to lend a helping hand. I’m not going to lie, sometimes I get really stressed out because I worry about a lot of things. My teachers have never hesitated to give me a hug and tell me everything’s going to be okay. Even when I’m not in a teacher’s class anymore, he or she always speaks to me in the hallway or asks me how I’ve been. 

My teachers have affected me lots in my life. They’ve taught me to be kind and caring to others. They’ve taught me how to work hard and never give up when times are rough. Even through some of the toughest times in my life, a teacher has always been there for me. Although my teachers have always helped me, here are a few I specifically remember.  One time, my parents were out of town while I was doing a huge project. My teachers helped me a lot with the project and were super helpful, making sure I understood everything. Another example of how my teachers have helped me is when I have experienced disappointment. My teachers were always there for me, helping me through hard times. 

 When I was younger, my teachers prepared me a lot for middle school, too. One of my teachers always taught us how to have manners and be polite. She taught us things like putting our napkins in our laps and saying please and thank you every day. Even teachers I had when I was really little still always give me hugs and kind words. My teachers this semester have also done so much to help us during remote learning. For example, they have been really patient with us when we don’t understand something. They have also helped us adapt to doing things virtually, by sending us clear instructions along with super sweet emails encouraging us. All of the teachers have worked really hard through this time, even though I’m sure it's been a challenge for them, too.  

I still remember lots of amazing memories from all my teachers. I remember crafts we used to make for the Christmas sing along, like the partridge in a pear tree hat and the French flags we made. I also remember our class pets like Sharkie and Sid the Sloth. I remember all the fun overnight field trips and PEAK adventures.  I remember all the laughs, all the smiles, and all of the wonderful times that I’ve had.  I will always cherish those memories. I will always look back on how kind my teachers were to me and all they did for me. I love all my teachers, and I appreciate them more than they’ll ever know.
