Teacher Appreciation Week is celebrated in schools nationwide this week. Many PTAs in Alexandria, Virginia are busy making sure school staff gets recognized – with a special breakfast or lunch, gift cards, or other tokens of appreciation. Some area businesses are offering freebies/discounts for our teachers.
I recall many of my teachers who made a lasting impression on me. For example, there was Mrs. Schwartz at Douglas MacArthur, Mr. Gravette at T.C. Williams and so many more. My son Sam has had really great teachers as well in Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) like Ms. Hribar, Ms. Maslyn, Ms. Gross, and Ms. Corbi.
The National Education Association has many ideas for thanking a teacher this week. It doesn’t take much to show appreciation for our teachers- a book, a gift card, a plate of cookies, or the most treasured, a handwritten note.
Thank you to all the teachers in Alexandria, Virginia! Who were/are some of your favorite teachers?
