Educents Teacher Appreciation Week and Free Gift

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

A parent is a child's first teacher. I also homeschool my daughter so I am her primary teacher, but she also has a piano teacher, a dance instructor, and several Sunday school teachers.

I appreciate everything my teachers have done in my life. I especially remember one math teacher who had a profound impact on my life and the decisions I made as an adult. I still send out and receive Christmas cards occasionally from this math teacher. Mrs. Hill was always there for me when I needed help or a friend. She was involved in my life and showed that she cared for me. She was one of the many teachers that taught me to be a strong leader and woman.

Here are six reasons why I am thankful for educators:
  1. The educators in my life had patience when teaching difficult concepts. They also helped me understand that mistakes are inevitable and that we can indeed learn from them. 
  2. They provided me with the guidance I needed and a shoulder to lean on when faced with difficult home life circumstances.
  3. They encouraged and motivated me to follow my dreams enabling me to be anything I wanted to be when I grew up. They gave me the power to overcome obstacles that stood in my way.
  4. They taught me to have the strength I need to stand up for myself and the needs of others around me. 
  5. They helped prepare me for college and life by giving me advice and structure.  
  6. The teachers throughout my childhood and life shaped me into the homeschool teacher and educator that I became today. 
Education has such an impact on ourselves and our little ones. Educents is here to help you pay it forward. In honor of Teacher Appreciation week, Educents and Peekapak have teamed up to provide your favorite educators with a gift basket worth over $40, which includes a FREE $10 Educents Gift Card; 3 months of Peekapak lesson plans (3 digital storybooks, 12 in-class lessons; and 12 at-home activities) that teach Character Education and Language Arts.

I was lucky enough to receive this package from my seven-year-old daughter who attached a special message for me to read. I'm glad that she loves homeschooling and her kind words brought joy to my day. It's your turn to let others know they've impacted your life in some way.

So, whether it's your mom, your classroom teacher, a homeschool mother, a tutor, your neighbors, or another special human being who taught you important lessons, thank them by giving them a FREE gift basket, on Educents!

Thank you for visiting A Learning Journey. God bless!
