Teachers have one of the hardest jobs in the world I think. You know how there are days where your little angels get on your very last nerve? Imagine being in charge of 20-25 children at one time and not having the ability to send them to their room or outside to blow off some steam. Everyone learns differently and at a different speed. Teachers are in charge of educating everyone at the same time, at the same speed. They do this while also trying to keep everyone in their seats and quiet.
When my daughter was in elementary school I use to help volunteer in her class once a month. At the end of the day, (and I was only there for a few hours) I would hug her teacher telling her that I had NO idea how she's done this for years on end. Then go home and take a very much needed nap!!!
Teachers are our unsung heroes. Society says that it's the teacher's job to help mold these students to be successful adults. It's hard to do when you are in charge of this many children.
We all have a teacher we loved when we were growing up. I bet your child has one too. It's important in my mind to remember to thank a teacher that has made a difference in your life. They need the thanks and recognition of all they do.
Crayola has a new thank a teacher campaign and giveaway.
Personally, I love this campaign idea. Not only does it thank a teacher it encourages children to be thankful, and be creative. To enter is easy, you simply create a thank you card for your favorite teacher and upload it to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #CrayolaThanks. You can also upload it to their website for the campaign and your child's creation may be featured on their online gallery! Your child can create their own thank you card or use the free download on Crayola's website.
I'm sure you are wondering what the prize is since I did mention it's a giveaway too. Oh, you'll love this. The giveaway is for both their families and their school.
Ten grand prize packs will be awarded, inclusive of:
- $10,000 classroom makeover for the teacher
- One year supply of Crayola products for the school
- $1,000 scholarship for the student
- $1,000 gift card for both the teacher and school
- Free CreatEd seminar for the school
In addition to the grand prizes, one lucky entrant will have his or her thank you note featured on a special pack of Crayola crayons this holiday. In addition, weekly sweepstakes will run concurrently with the contest, offering entrants a chance to win $500 gift cards for themselves and their teachers. The contest and sweepstakes will run through August 25, 2018.
Is your family entering the thank a teacher contest by Crayola? I'd love to see your child's creation.
