When I taught K5, I tutored a particular student after school hours. He was a bit slower to grasp concepts than the others, so his parents asked me to help him by tutoring him after school a few days a week. It was a precious time to see the "light come on" for him, as he began to comprehend the ideas better. After the school year ended, his parents came to me & told me that I was a great teacher & how very much they appreciated my taking the time to help their son. Ten years later, I still feel joy bubble up inside me & gather confidence as I remember their kind, heartfelt words to me. Proverbs 25:11 states "A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold In settings of silver."
Teachers really appreciate the gifts they receive. Don't underestimate the power of a heartfelt gift, given simply!
In honor of the teachers who grind it out every day in the classrooms (I take my hat off to them!), I have come up with an easy, cute project that is sure to please any teacher in your life!
