National Teacher Appreciation Week Takes a Step Higher
Appreciating teachers is definitely the most precious way we can repay all the hard work that our teachers had given to us. They have labored so hard, not to mention the very limited salary income they receive monthly, still, they continue to pursue on their profession. I guess this is what a real teacher is: dedicated to his work without really focusing on what financial returns she receives. She is gladly satisfied to see her students become great people that helps bring change to the world.
That is why, on the first place, the Teacher Appreciation Week is celebrated annually. We recognize their ability; we respect their duty; and we definitely look forward to their ultimate success as well. They deserve to be appreciated, and if it’s necessary to shout it as loud as the usage of media is possible, then somebody will implement it.
In fact, there really are some groups of young people who appreciated their teachers by using the media. It wasn’t actually very special. What makes it special at some point is that the names of the teachers were specifically mentioned by these youngsters as they really showed how their teachers served as their inspiration.
According to CNN, its School of Thought and CNN Student News asked some of their audiences to send some iReports during their celebration with the National Teacher Appreciation Week. Lots of students were really expressing their gratitude towards their teachers and they never failed to mention them.
Teachers all over the world—teachers like Mr. Balch, Mrs. Bachman, Miss Manal, Miss Regne, Mrs. Thomson, Mrs. Gast, Mrs. Clapham, Mrs. Murray, Ms. Marker, and all others—from different locations like Texas, North Dakota, and even the Philippines were special mentioned by their loving students. They were well-appreciated.
As for us, we don’t really necessarily need to use the influence of media to show appreciation to our teachers. Good if we take advantage of them, but there are also various ways we can express how thankful we are that they exist. What else could you possibly think of more?
