Every week should be Teacher Appreciation Week

2015 May 6
by HISD Communications

There are certain people we should celebrate every day — not just on special holidays and weeks. Mothers, for one, deserve more than just the annual bouquet of flowers or box of chocolates many will receive this Sunday.

Teachers also deserve gratitude day-in-and-day-out. Still, it’s been nice to see HISD’s outpouring during Teacher Appreciation Week (and Teacher Appreciation Day Tuesday). We’ll toast all our Teachers of the Year at our Celebration of Excellence May 15, and you can vote for your “fan favorite” for special acknowledgment.

If you think about it, mothers and teachers have a lot in common. They’re nurturers, disciplinarians, mentors, and impart both core knowledge and life lessons. They get us ready to go into the world with a strong foundation of learning, skills, and values.

I hope you’ll take the time to view this video where many of our students expressed thanks to their teachers with a variety of sentiments, both touching and thought-provoking. It might make you think about how a teacher is making a difference in the life of your child, or about a special teacher who helped shape you into the person you are today.

And we hope it will remind you to say “thank you” every day.
