Show Some Teacher Appreciation on Facebook
posted by: Steph | August 03, 2010, 05:47 PM   

Think back to your favorite class. Not the one where you got to goof off, but the one where you realized that learning could be fun. Perhaps you didn’t admit at the time that you actually enjoyed chemistry, or advanced algebra or Shakespeare, but that class changed your future.

That critical class was taught by a teacher, and at the time you may not have had the time or the appropriate venue to thank your teacher. Today, Facebook gives former students a platform to thank their teachers.

The New York Times recently highlighted the trend of former students finding their childhood teachers 20, 30, and 40 years after they graduated. Is there a teacher you never got the chance to thank? Don’t use Facebook only to connect with former classmates, connect with your teachers and share with them how they have affected your life.

Teacher appreciation should not be relegated to one day or one week a year. Show your appreciation today.

And while you are on Facebook, check out our page: Association of American Educators
