Teachers, along with parents, set the course for the future, and a good one can make all the difference. The aphorism on this card was a much more poetic person’s way of saying, “I may be a giant pain in your ass now, but boy, wait a few years and I’m going to be awesome. Thanks for that.”
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.
Not only convenient, but environmentally responsible as well. Made to last up to five times as long as a standard notebook due to its microwave-to-erase feature. Also, scan and beam pages of notes to the cloud with a specially designed app. Saves money, cuts down on clutter, and gives them a touch of futuristic cool.
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.
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.
Don’t underestimate how quickly the little things add up. Buying supplies for basic classroom activities can get really expensive, especially in the youngest classes where half of the stuff just gets eaten. Save them a little time, money, and stress by replenishing the stock.
Teachers are famous for taking their work home with them. Give them a much needed break by getting them tickets to a concert, play, comedy show, or other event where they get to kick back and be the audience for once. After all, they’ve been dealing with your kids every day. You know what that’s like.
Back in the good old days, a “classroom management tool” would have been nothing more than a wooden yardstick. The one the teacher used to hit kids who fell asleep, tried to wander off, or said something stupid. It seemed to work pretty well, but after a while they decided everyone should be nicer. So someone invented this idea, where teachers can keep track of kids with pieces of paper and other symbols instead of brute force. It seems to be working fine too.
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.
