Friday Five: Thankful Edition

Friday Five: Thankful Edition


My Teacher Friends

How could a teacher start a thankful list without mentioning the people who always support her? Teacher friends are essential. Partially because they get it in a way that no other friend could understand. My teacher friends constantly uplift me and challenge me. We push each other to learn more, to do better, to grow. We also support each other when this challenging profession becomes too much. My teacher friends have supported me through the worst of times and helped me celebrate the best of times. I still remain in contact with my close teacher friends from my past schools. I am extremely grateful to have these wonderful people in my life. 


My Students

…should students have come first? Maybe but I just got done Facetiming one of my teacher friends in the US! Teacher friends were on the brain. I am so thankful for each and every diamond in my class this year. I am also so grateful to have had the opportunity to teach all my friends of years past. How can you not take a moment to appreciate all the smiling faces that you work with each day? 


Juicy Markers

You might think this is a joke but it is not…. if you teach lower elementary you might just understand. This year my class loves to take caps off of markers and lose them! 😂Just kidding! They’re in grade 1 and they can’t help it! We’re working on this clicking of the caps but until then I am eternally grateful when I pick up a whiteboard marker or a chart marker and it actually works. I mean, is there anything better? 


HandWritten Notes

This week we had indoor recess due to air pollution. After indoor recess, I got so many cards filled with drawings of me and hearts and our classroom. I seriously treasure all of these notes that I have gotten over the year. In the States, I have a box that is full of them. There is nothing better than a note of appreciation from a child. 



If you’re reading this blog then I am so thankful for you. I love sharing my educational expertise with the world. Over my career, I’ve had several blogs but this is the one I’ve kept running the longest. I am so thankful to everyone who takes the time to read my words. Hopefully, I’ve helped you learn something or try something new within your classroom. Let me know what other things you’d like to read about and I would gladly post about them! 

I hope all of my American readers had a wonderful holiday filled with relaxation and rejuvenation. 

Leave a comment and let me know what makes your teacher heart grateful!
