Was there a special teacher in your life who never gave up on you or saw something others missed? Can you name a drama coach, sports coach or piano teacher who impacted your life for the better?

If you could write a Valentine’s note to this one special teacher in your life—what would you say? Why not write it RIGHT NOW? Put pen to paper and share your thoughts. Even if this person has since passed away, you can still share the story with your kids. Or see if you can find the teacher’s mailing address or Facebook account!

Friends of Volunteerspot share their own ‘Love My Teacher’ Notes:

From Shara, owner of & Early Childhood News & Resources: “A rush of emotions ran through my blood and into my heart, around my past and onto my future. This teacher gave me hope and he offered me compassion. He boosted my self-esteem and made me wonder: “Can it be true? Could I have

leadership abilities? Me?” He didn’t have any children of his own but his heart adopted some, like me. He gave me confidence and self-assurance that has lasted, in my memory bank, for over 19 years.

Think about all of your children’s teachers—what special teachers, administrators or school staff members in your child’s life deserve special Thank You Valentine Teacher Gifts?

Sarah Auerswald of “My son’s teacher is amazing. She really goes the extra mile to make sure all the kids are learning and are excited about school. She uses crafts and her room is very colorfully-decorated. My son says she makes jokes to help the day seem fun, which he likes, of course. Overall, she sees it as her duty to prepare these kids for the next level and she works tirelessly to make sure they all get there.”

Jill Berry of “I love that my child’s school will go the extra mile. Last year when my child had one issue that crossed all disciplines, the school set up one parent-teacher conference with all teachers. It was so helpful for my husband and I to be able to talk to all teachers at one meeting.”

Elizabeth Donovan of “My daughter’s first grade teacher, Ms. Chance, has done a wonderful job of helping her adjust to a new school this year. Her teacher always ‘goes the extra mile’ and is supportive of my daughter’s achievements.”
