In the natural world, flowers are renowned for their vibrancy and visual diversity. But in the human world, green will always be the primary color. Such is convention that a handful of wadded bills may be considered insulting. Deliver them in the form of roses and everyone is happy.
Teachers may only work nine months a year, but they sure are busy while they’re at it. Just ask one sometime. The best thing you can do to keep them from going insane and taking it out on your kids is to volunteer your time and energy in some way that makes their life easier. Chaperone a field trip, offer to help grade papers — offer yourself up in any way that sounds legal and ethical. After all, just because you’re too old to be a student doesn’t mean you can’t still earn points as a brown-noser.
Teachers sacrifice more and put up with more B.S. on a daily basis than many people realize, all in order to follow their calling. These custom wine labels allow you to make reparations for all of the pain and suffering you may have unintentionally caused with your spawn. In the end, teachers gladly bear the burden of dealing with all the little monsters who have yet to develop impulse control. Still, a little acknowledgement is always nice.
Otto’s just about guaranteed to be the cutest thing on any desk he happens to land on. He’s also got some serious core strength to maintain that half-situp position all day. Add some personality and warmth to your favorite teacher’s everyday surroundings.
Teacher’s unions are under siege across the country, and wages are the big issue. Nobody’s going to expect you to personally bail out your favorite teacher, but why not take a stab at inflating their bank account through the most culturally-accepted form of gambling? Everyone needs a little hope.
This may sound like a sly ploy by the NSA to get everybody on the grid, but it’s really just a cute artistic gesture symbolizing the diverse and far-reaching influence a single person can have through dedicated effort. Stop being so paranoid.
Teachers have a selfless, stressful, and often thankless job. Most of the time, the only ones who get noticed are those who give bizarre, racially insensitive lectures or sleep with their students. Show a talented, dedicated teacher that you noticed them too.
You can tell someone something important once, but let’s be real: people lead busy lives. They’re going to go home and find that they’re dog crapped on the carpet, and they’ll forget what you said forever. Put it into a piece of art, on the other hand, and they’ll think of it every time they walk by.
It’s no secret that teaching is about the future, about helping kids become the best version of themselves. But sometimes it’s nice to step into the past too. Give them something to remind them of the time they spent molding these innocent young minds like so much human clay.
