As the school year draws to an end, I am certain many parents are searching for that perfect gift for their child’s teacher. A sincere “Thank You” goes a long way. So many teachers go above and beyond, every day, to give our children the best education possible. As a classroom volunteer, I know how hard our teachers work each day. Many stay after, planning the next week’s lesson, making copies, and displaying their students’ works on bulletin boards. I thought it would be fitting to recognize the many amazing teachers here in Calvert County. Your efforts do not go unnoticed. We support you and appreciate all that you do for our children.
Our daughter was blessed to have Mrs. Jaime Flores for her fourth grade teacher at Windy Hill Elementary School. Mrs.Flores has been a positive influence in our daughter’s education from day one. She is one of those teachers that you hope your child has. She is kind. She is fun. She is tolerant. She is encouraging. She is forgiving. She instills in each student, a life long love for learning. I was honored to witness this wonderful teacher guide her students throughout the year. I am reminded of a statement Mrs.Flores made at the beginning of the year: “Our class is like a family. We take care of each other.”
If only every child could know this kind of compassion at school. Thank you, Mrs. Flores.
Parents, if your child has a wonderful teacher; someone who has made a difference in their lives, please be sure to let them know how much you appreciate them.
