I am thankful for you because....

In my 20 years of teaching I've gathered a file full of 
sweet parent, student, and co-worker notes.  
Once or twice a year, on those REALLY tough days, 
when I feel like nothing I'm doing is right, I pull out that file and read through it.  
Reading those kinds words immediately makes me feel better.  

The written word is powerful and in this day of 
texting and emailing and IMing and chatting,
it is rare that we ever stop long enough to 
actually write something down. 

I made this quick little half sheet printable so that I could jot down notes 
to some co-workers, students, and others in my life that I'm thankful for.
 I'm going to print a bunch so that my students can fill a few out too- 
to share with those they are thankful for.  
I'm planning to leave one tomorrow in my classroom for our sweet custodian 
along with a gift card because I truly am thankful for her! 

I Am Thankful for You Because

  2. I do the exact same thing! I keep all my little notes from children and Thank You's from parents and co-workers! The really are uplifting! Thanks for this!!! :)

  3. Cute Idea....I will save it for next year :) I am sending you some sunshine on my site.
