Last Monday was Teacher's Day. The Saturday before that, my kids asked me to take them out to shop for presents to give their teachers. My daughter bought 3 presents while my son bought 1. They were not elaborate nor expensive presents, but they were symbols of their love and appreciation for their teacher. I didn't even have to wrap the presents; they did that themselves.
My kids have only been attending this school beginning of this year. In the previous school, my kids didn't even bother with Teacher's Day. They never bought their teachers any presents, not even a Thank You card. Come to think of it, I believe they use to say "No need to go to school today ok? Teacher's Day is very boring."
Seeing this change in my kids, I asked them, "Do you think the teachers in this school is better than the old school?" Unanimously they said "Yes!"
So, how do you know if your children's teachers are good?
See what they do during Teacher's Day.
A good teacher is one that earns their respect, touches their heart and inspires their mind.
