Why is elementary school teacher appreciation so important?

Teaching elementary school appeals to those who want to make a difference in very young lives. They love children and learning and also possess patience, but they want to get more support and recognition from children’s parents. This is big motivation for them to do better.
2) Because they know they are the engineers of children’s spirit
Bitter are the roots of study, but how sweet their fruit. Teacher is the great engineer of children’s spirit. Just like Abraham Lincoln said to teacher that children so that it will not be necessary to teach the adults.
Elementary school teachers always teach our children how become outstanding people with good personality and gentle behavior, know more about protocol and civilization, learn forgive, told you what is love etc. Then this is good behavior that show appreciation by appropriate thank you teacher gifts, we always set good example for our kids.
3) They always work hard
When the kids are at home doesn’t mean that teachers are not working. They need to finish all documentation at the end of the year and they have to set and prepare the new classes before the next course begin. They need to spend more time thinking of new teach methods to motivate student’s interest. They need to know more growth of every student, their family, their psychology, their grade etc.
