    My daughter is currently in the second grade at a small elementary school in a rural town in Texas. This year was her teacher’s first year teaching and like so many other teachers, it was her responsibility to purchase many of the items necessary to successfully teach her students. Her teacher has done so much with what little resources she has, and dipped heavily into her own pocketbook to make their classroom learning environment spectacular for the kids. She has gone above and beyond to prepare her classroom to be an exciting and motivating place for the young children she teaches for 8 hours each day. In addition to her preparation before my child arrived in her classroom, she has gone the extra mile to help my child with her reading this year.
    My daughter has a speech impediment which causes her to struggle to pronounce and spell words, for example, she hears and pronounces c’s as t’s, among other things. Mrs. C. has stayed after school for hours on end working one on one with my child to improve her reading. She has sent home extra assignments and volunteered so much of her time, resources, and energy to ensure no child is left behind. She has done everything in her power to lay a solid educational foundation for her students and she deserves to be recognized for her extended efforts.
    We all know that teacher’s pay is no where near where it should be and additionally, how much they personally spend to furnish their classrooms. My daughter’s teacher is not unique to other educators in this manner, however she is very unique in the extent in which she lends herself to her class. Just last week my daughter told me that her teacher was paying for several kids in the class to attend a field trip who could otherwise not afford it. Her teacher used her money to help these students and received no acknowledgment for this effort.
    She is kind, energetic, fun, caring, and hard working. This personalized stationary would help her feel appreciated and as if her efforts with her class was not going unnoticed. Considering this is her first year teaching and all of the struggles she has overcome to better provide an outstanding educational environment for her students, I think winning something like this and feeling appreciated would be something she’d look back on and remember for years to come!

      Thanks so much for sharing Molly! It sounds like your daughter really has a great teacher. With dedication like that there is no doubt she will be making an impact on the lives of the children she teaches for years to come!

    My favorite teacher is one my girl has right now! My teenage daughter struggles with the burden of perfectionism, like many girls and women. She has a wonderful teacher who is full of humor and kindness and light. She taught my girl a phrase that has pretty much become a daily mantra in our house now, “Somewhere between perfect and failure…is beautiful.”

    I would love to nominate my daughter’s kindergarten teacher. This is her first year teaching and she has done a wonderful job! She also just had a baby a few months ago. We would love to be able to gift her personalized stationery to thank her for all the support and hard work she has done for my daughter. I’m sure she has felt overwhelmed with the responsibilities of being a first-time teacher and a first-time mommy. I am in awe of what teachers do on a daily basis and I really believe they are underappreciated.

    Thank you so much for holding this teacher giveaway and supporting teachers! Good luck to everyone who enters!

    Madi has to get glasses. She didn’t want to wear them
    So Ms. Walton wore her glasses instead of contacts for a whole week, until Madi was comfortable enough to wear hers. She even took a picture with Madi, saying how much they were alike. Madi has that picture framed.

    My daughter started her first year of preschool in a Montessori Children’s House program. The children in her class are ages 3-6. She has loved the idea of going to school for over a year prior to starting in preschool. Her first few weeks of school were somewhat of a transition however, as she had always been under the care of a relative (mom, grandma, aunt, etc.). She thoroughly enjoyed her in-class time, however, felt all alone among twenty students when on the playground at the beginning of the day and during dismissal time. My daughter’s teacher was patient with her, encouraged her, and helped her connect with other students so that she could enjoy this time at school as well. We are so thankful that she now enjoys school from beginning to end!
