Thank you for helping us celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week!

Written by Marketing Staff

The week of May 6-10 was Teacher Appreciation Week, and for all of us at Walsworth Yearbooks, that was reason to celebrate.

For all the educators we work with on a daily basis, we know your most important job isn’t being a yearbook adviser, it’s being a teacher. Walsworth Yearbooks appreciates your commitment to improving the lives of our students.

To honor these stars that week, the students who shared personal stories with us about a teacher who impacted their life in a positive way won a copy of the book, “Heart of a Teacher.” The book will be delivered to each inspirational teacher by a Walsworth yearbook representative.

You can still share your stories in the Comments below, or on the Walsworth Yearbooks Facebook page.

My current yearbook teacher, Mrs. Lindsay is my favorite teacher. She has been my elective teacher for three years and is like a mother to our class room. She is a great teacher and I will be sad to leave her soon

It is easy to say that many people throughout our lives have impacted us at some point. But I cannot help but to think of my two teachers I have been blessed to meet through the health academy: Mr. Rob Russo and Mrs. Diane Holmes. I could not ever make a decision between the two but they both have positively impacted my life and my future. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Russo since my freshman year in high school. He taught me both English one and two. Though out the courses I’ve learned that he is there for anyone and it is so easy to come to him for any advice or to just have someone to talk to. He taught me many lessons, including English, in those two years. Anyone can easily see his compassion for wanting to help others and how important it is to treat everyone with love and respect. I also have had Mrs. Holmes for two years: my sophomore and junior years. She was my teacher for health science one and two and also nursing assisting. Through having her, I’ve learned to see that if you want something you have to learn to work for it. She works as a teacher and an RN at a local nursing home and works her best at both. She helped me get my CNA license through her course and has inspired me to make a career goal for myself in nursing. Both of these teachers will always hold a spot in my memory and I am so lucky to have met them. Happy teacher appreciation week!

My Algebra Teacher Mrs. Stolz,

I am in 7th grade at Robert Frost MS in Rockville, Maryland. Mrs. Stolz is my favorite math teacher ever. She is always positive. When I get 6 problems wrong out of 10 she always says” Good Job you had 4 problems right”. It makes me want to get more right next time and it happens because i feel I ca do it and that she believes in me. She seats with me after school and goes over each problem showing me what I did wrong. I think i really like Algebra and I am not afraid to fail when i read a word problem that has to do with height and speed and the time it took to get there. I am getting there!

Mr. Haar is an awesome teacher. Being an AP US History teacher and the Yearbook Advisor he had a lot to
balance between his class! He somehow does it pretty well! He is a great inspiration too all of us in yearbook and a great Yearbook Advisor and always would give us tips to help make a better book! He was always a great teacher to go to ask advice for something too! Ever though I was only in yearbook and not in his history class, I learned some history stuff when we were in yearbook!

This is what I just wrote in our book’s colophon. (Omaha Marian High School – The Crusader BLUEPRINT)

To our adviser, Mrs. K:
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for all the time you spent with us. Every work night, you were there with advice and patience. Every day in class, I was astonished by your constant flow of energy. No other teacher can jolt us all awake with an excited “Happy Monday! Is it really happy?” Every time anyone felt overwhelmed, you were there to help. I think that you believed I could do it before I ever imagined that I would be able to.
I want to thank you for your guidance and your absence of guidance. You knew when we needed help, and you stepped in and worked your magic. But I am almost more grateful for the times that you didn’t help us. Even though the last thing I ever wanted to hear was “It’s your book, and it’s up to you,” I understand now why you wanted us to make the decisions. Because it is our book and our creation and you were here to guide us on our way. Besides, I learned the most attempting to do things on my own, and I grew so much under your leadership.

During teacher appreciation week, teachers should be able to look back and see all of the lives that they have impacted and take pride in their jobs. I believe at Crystal River High School, Florida, that there are many teachers who do a fantastic job at reaching out to students and putting their ‘all’ into their jobs. It is easily agreeable that yearbook advisors have a tremendous amount of work on their plates, including a side of stress. I think that our yearbook advisor, Mrs. Cindy Livesay, does a wonderful job at putting us to work and getting the yearbook done. I have only been in her class for one year but from my experience her hard work and dedication is obvious. I just wanted to say thank you to Mrs. Livesay for sticking it out with us and for putting up with all of us! Happy teacher appreciation week!
