Happy Teacher Appreciation Day!

Sometimes teaching is a thankless job…but not today!! For everyone who has a role in educating and impacting a child, we applaud and thank you. And, for the days you don’t feel appreciated, here’s a reminder that someone’s always watching.

When You Thought I Wasn’t Looking
By Mary Rita Schilke Korzan

When you thought I wasn’t looking, you displayed my first report, and I wanted to do another.
When you thought I wasn’t looking, you fed a stray cat, and I thought it was good to be kind to animals.
When you thought I wasn’t looking, you gave me a sticker, and I knew that little things were special things.
When you thought I wasn’t looking, you put your arm around me, and I felt loved.
When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw tears come from your eyes, and I learned that sometimes things hurt–but that it’s alright to cry.
When you thought I wasn’t looking, you smiled, and it made me want to look that pretty, too.
When you thought I wasn’t looking, you cared, and I wanted to be everything I could be.
When you thought I wasn’t looking–I looked…and wanted to say thanks for all those things you did when you thought I wasn’t looking.

And, just to add a little icing on the cake, here’s a special discount from The School Box stores. Just show your teacher i.d. to receive 20-40% off today!!

    Thank you for recognizing teachers. I don’t live close to a school box store, but it is the thought that counts! :)
