This week is Teacher Appreciation Week.
Here is what I found in my mailbox at work this morning:
Mrs. B. is a wonderful teacher because she is nice. She will help any student with homework and schoolwork. She is very smart and punctual. Plus she is very graceful with hardheaded students. Over all she is a great and wonderful teacher. (He also drew a picture with the caption "pretty as a flower.")
Never underestimate the power of saying thank you. It goes a long way.
