Teacher Appreciation Day

Today is Teacher Appreciation Day. Did you know? I knew this week was Teacher Appreciate Week, but was unaware an actual day was dedicated to teachers. 

I'd like to give a big Teacher Appreciation Day shoutout to my mom!!! She's been a kindergarten teacher forever. No, for real. She's taught Kindergarten longer than I've been alive. I'm sure she loves I'm announcing this to you, but she doesn't read my blog so it's cool. Anyway.... 

My mom, along with all kindergarten teachers, work extremely hard to get their students ready for 1st grade. I don't know if you realize this, but kindergarten is tough. It's not all about coloring in the lines and singing your ABCs. Now days, kindergarteners are reading books by Christmas and writing small paragraphs by Spring Break. And there's no nap time; because who has time for a nap when these five and six year olds have to know so much before 1st grade!!! 

So Blogger Friends, if you know a teacher give them a big pat on the back. It's the least we can do. Happy Teacher Appreciation Day Mom!

Your Mom deserves lots of praise! What a great thing she is doing, preparing young ones for a lifetime of success by helping them get off to a great start. (I should know how important it is, this was my first teaching job! :) )
