Educators Give Thanks

"As an educator, I am thankful for my supportive colleagues whom I work with every day who truly give their best to their students. I am thankful for my students and how they motivate me to seek out new ideas in my efforts to make language learning more engaging and relevant. I am also thankful for the online community of educators who willingly share resources and ideas via TpT, Pinterest, and blogs."
-Island Teacher

"I am thankful for my 4-6 year old students who come to class with so much joy and enthusiasm every day and soak up the language like little sponges."
-The World Language Cafe

"While I was teaching, I was grateful for "snow days", Thanksgiving break, polite students (or as we say in Spanish "los bien educates"), and Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences.
Now that I'm retired, I'm grateful for this site, Language Teachers' Cafe, and the opportunities it gives foreign language teachers. I'm so thankful I don't have to do the 30 minute commute to work on snowy days."
-Caroline Marion - I Speak Your Language

"I'm thankful for the Kentucky World Languages Program Review. Most people see it as annoying and one more thing from the State that has to be done but I see it as a way that motivates districts to make sure they include foreign languages at EVERY level - including elementary! I think once people start seeing the impact it has on their students they won't be sorry that Program Review made them include it in their daily instruction."

"Getting that hard-earned thank you from the tough kid!"
