Thank you for helping us celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week!

Written by Idea File 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.

    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!
