A Letter to My Teacher by Deborah HopkinsonDear Teacher, Whenever I had something to tell you, I tugged on your shirt and whispered in your ear. This time Im writing a letter. So begins this picture book about a girl who prefers running and jumping to listening and learning and the teacher who gently inspires her. From stomping through creeks on a field trip to pretending to choke when called upon to read aloud, this books young heroine would be a challenge to any teacher. But this teacher isnt just any teacher. By listening carefully and knowing just the right thing to say, she quickly learns that the girls unruly behavior is due to her struggles with reading. And at the very end, we learn what this former student is now: a teacher herself.
A Letter To My Former Teacher
Good teachers help guide us to develop our potentials and embrace our strengths. Express your gratitude for your teacher with a heartfelt thank-you note. And maybe give them an inexpensive yet thoughtful gift to show your appreciation. Dear Mr. Thompson, When I first saw you walk into our classroom, I saw the kind of person I was proud to call my teacher. Every day you came to school with a smile on your face and a kind word for all of your students. That means a lot.
There are so many things I wish I would have said to you while I occupied a desk in your classroom, once I graduated, or anytime really. You deserved to know how I felt every single day, but I didn't always say it, not because I didn't care but because you were always incredible to me. I just grew to expect you swooping in and planting a smile on my face. In case you didn't know though, let me tell you exactly how I feel. To me, you were everything rolled into one: teacher, parent, friend, and kick in the pants. I asked you to check my homework, wipe away my tears, keep my secrets, and motivate me on my worst days, and you never failed to do all of that and more.
Tomorrow is world teachers' day. I want to know how to write a letter to show my care? Hi Zoe, Welcome to the Forum. Think about that. Try to write those words in a letter, starting with Dear Teacher ,.
