This is Teacher Appreciation Week, and this week, more than ever, we should all be thinking about all the teachers who have influenced us in a positive way.
I’ve posted here before about some of my favorite teachers, and those facts haven’t changed. I still think of Mrs. Harrod, Mrs. Endris, and Dr. Jenkinson with all the loving feelings in the world. They let a smallish, nerdy girl feel important, and if you’ve ever been a smallish, nerdy girl, you’ll know how wonderful that is. And how rare. (If you were a smallish, nerdy boy, you’ll know, too.) No matter what kind of kid you were, you’ll know. In fact, this applies to students of any age. Teenage and adult students like to feel appreciated, too.
Steve Spangler understands this. All of the products and all of the freebies and all of the experiments are made and meant to open worlds of wonder for all kids. For all adults, too – nobody is ever too old to like to blow things up and learn the why and wherefore of the universe. (Bonus points if you know why that expression is redundant.)
If you’re wondering about a gift for your favorite teacher, or your child’s teacher, look no further than Steve Spangler’s website, because our Gift Certificate will solve all your gift-giving problems. I’m a teacher, and I’ll tell you the truth: Teachers love gift certificates or gift cards. After a single year in the classroom, a teacher will have collected enough mugs, candles, figurines, ornaments, and picture frames to start a gift shop. Gift cards/certificates solve YOUR dilemma and give a teacher the chance to buy something he/she really wants or needs.
Be sure to include a personal note with the certificate/card. A personal remembrance is the most precious gift any teacher could ever receive.
