After the initial years in the safe, familiar confines of their homes, kids eventually step out to join school. Whether this creates greater separation anxiety for the Mom or child is a different matter! While our kids are at school, they are away from our eyes, but they have a worthy substitute in their teachers, in whom we place our trust.
As the Mom of a toddler or preschooler, you know how much of a handful your little one can be! Your child’s teacher has to deal with many kids at once, and you have to admit – they do deserve a medal for staying sane! So this Teacher’s Day, let’s show our appreciation for our lovely educators with an easy card that kids can make.

Teachers are like our kids’ parents away from home, so giving them a small token of appreciation will be a lovely gesture. We trust them to educate, inspire and encourage our child, and we hope that it’ll help kids blossom into good human beings. As American politician Henry Adams said, “A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.”
