You remember because you trusted them, they taught you something and were a great influence in helping shape your values.
Similar to your favorite boss – he/she you trusted because they looked out for you and they helped you develop in your career.
With another school year winding down, it is a good time to reflect on teachers. What they do for our children, what they’ve done for us and the influence they’ve had on our lives.
I recently read this great little book entitled – “Heart of a Teacher” by Paula J. Fox. I found it to be warm, brought back great memories and full of inspiration … with a number of lessons to apply in the business world.
It contains a segment on “100 ways to encourage a child” … most of which can apply to adults in the working world as well.
If you are looking for a teacher’s gift … this is an economical and practical way to say thank you to the teacher who plays such a big part of your childs / children’s life.
