You are the one who cares for my child when I am not there.
You teach them how to read and how to be a good friend.
You help them with art projects and tying shoes.
You comfort worries and celebrate successes.
You plant marigolds for Mother’s Day, as well as seeds of inspiration.
You give out pencils as needed and praise often.
You give up your own time for conferences and handwritten notes home.
You make my child look forward to going to school each morning.
You are the one who cares for my “heart” in your classroom every single day.
You are my child’s teacher, and I appreciate you.
