Bing Teacher Appreciation Website

I love my son's kindergarten teacher. He does too, but I really think I am going to miss her more than he even will when he finishes Kindergarten tomorrow (sniff.) She has been an amazing teacher in my book because she embodies the perfect combination of  being a mother-like figure while also being a teacher.

The first day of school I was beyond nervous to let go of my little boy's hand and send him into the classroom. What if his teacher just didn't 'get him?' What if she was impatient or too stern with him?What if he ended up hating school because of this very first teacher? The "what ifs' played in my head all morning. I hoped she understood how hard it was for me to turn over my son for pretty much the first time to another woman who would have the potential to have a huge influence on him. Yea...I was a wreck.

As it turned out, my son and I were both blessed to have this teacher in his first year of school. She is a wonderful person and an amazing educator. And she has absolutely instilled in my son a love for school and learning. I doubt I could ever show just how much I appreciate her. But thanks to Bing, there is something we can all do to say 'Thank-you' to teachers who help, care, teach and love our children everyday.

When you visit the Bing Teacher Appreciation Website (and I really do urge you to visit!) you can share your comments about special teachers that have been in your life and/or your children's. You can share up to 5 comments, and in return for sharing, Bing will give you a $5.00 Giving Code (for each comment) that you can donate to a "Classroom Project" of your choice. These "Classroom Projects" are created by Teachers themselves, so you know they very worthwhile and will help so many kids. You can review the different "Classroom Projects" at the website, DonorsChoose.org.

I think Bing is doing a wonderful thing here, and teachers deserve all the appreciation, support and help we can give them. And so do the children these teachers are dedicated to helping everyday.
