09 Nov The Thank You Project!
Hey gang –
I have the honor of being the keynote speaker at the Excellence in Education event on November 18. It’s a celebration sponsored by the Iowa State Education Association to honor teachers who have done amazing things for their students and their schools.
The overarching goal: To say THANK YOU to some amazing teachers and honor them for their efforts!
So… I’m excited.
As I was thinking about the event… I got an idea.
What if we all had the chance to say THANK YOU to that special teacher that really made an impact in OUR lives?
What if you had the chance to say thank you to that teacher who invested in you… that really saw you… that really encouraged you… that really pushed you?
So… here’s what we’re going to do.
I’m going to make this a fill in the blank question. I’m going to post it here and on Facebook.
You can respond to it by clicking comments.
Let’s just see how many teachers we can thank.
Then… I may just read some of them as I’m speaking to the group on the 18th.
Granted… your favorite teacher might not be in the audience… but we’ll try to honor as many favorites as we can! Plus, I’m guessing that by hearing about some of the other teachers who have made an impact on people’s lives… it will inspire these incredible teachers to continue to do the amazing jobs that they are doing!
Who’s with me?
Okay… so here we go.
Fill in the blanks…
Dear Mr./Mrs./Miss _____________, thank you for _____________________. I’ll never forget it!
I know that many of my teachers played a HUGE role in helping me to think and dream bigger… and for that… I’m wildly grateful!
I’m betting you feel the same way about some of YOUR teachers!
So… let’s take a second and say thank you. It will be fun to see where this goes!
Keep dreaming BIG!
