In honor of teacher appreciation week, I am posting two letters to two absolutely wonderful teachers; Megan wrote to Dr. Daniel, her chemistry teacher at Hagerty and Drew wrote to Mrs. Kelly, his fourth grade math teacher at Carillon Elementary. This project has shown me, and reaffirmed for my students, just how much of impact teachers make! So, a BIG shout out and thanks to all teachers for everything they do!
Letter #1 - Megan writes:
Dear, Dr. Daniel.
William Arthur Ward once said, “The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. But, the truly great teacher inspires.” I’m writing to thank you for inspiring me to shoot for the moon. You know what every individual student needs and you push them to meet all of their expectations and more. Your positive attitude triggers a desire to learn in every one of your students. Not only do you teach, but you give us ambition and the drive to do the impossible. Never before have I met a teacher so dedicated to her job, and because of that, I owe you everything. Thank you!
Letter #2 - Drew writes:
I wanted to write a thank you letter for teaching me so wonderfully. A few weeks ago I took the Math FCAT and one of the questions asked for the mean of a set of numbers and the only thing I could remember about “mean” was the cheesy song you taught us in fourth grade. (insert music notes “add, count, divide” insert music notes). So, thanks to your memory aid that lasted six years, I was able to get that question right on the FCAT!
