May 3-7: Teacher Appreciation Week!

Posted on: May 3, 2010


Teacher appreciation week is the time where you can show gratitude to your teacher for all the effortthey put in each day to teach and for the education that we receive thanks to them. This week is celebrated worldwide and it is the week where you can reward your teacher with your choice of present.

Teacher appreciation week is not only a way for students to celebrate their teachers but also for people to learn more about teaching as a profession and its merits worldwide since teaching is done differently in each country.

Check out this short activity:

How well do you know your teacher? Just take a piece of paper and write:

  • Teacher’s full name.
  • Subject.
  • Gender and approximate age.
  • Husband or wife? Kids? Pets?
  • Where is he or she from?
  • Physical remarks (glasses, height, hair…).
  • Normally wears…
  • Any known hobby.
  • Funny details, like tics, words he/she repeats a lot, etc.
  • Anything else that may be important
  •   

     

    Now, why do you feel a special teacher appreciation for him or her? You may wish to take a few minutes to think about:

    • Why are you particularly fond of this teacher?
    • How does he or she compare to other teachers you’ve had before?
    • Is he or she more tolerant than others?
    • Does he or she obtain true respect and teacher appreciation from the class without getting angry?
    • Are his or her lessons particularly interesting, funny or just easier to understand?
    • Does he or she address each student individually and meet his or her particular needs?
    • Does he or she make efforts to solve your doubts, even beyond his or her current knowledge?
    • Does he or she take some time to discuss with you students beyond his or her particular subject?
    • Apart from his or her subject, what values have you learnt from this teacher?
    • If you’re thinking about a teacher or professor you had long ago, why do you think you remember that person especially?

    Please feel free to participate. Together we can help many other people to show their teacher appreciation, thus making them and their teachers happier!
