Teacher Appreciation Week at Casa!
Timid, lacks confidence, and is afraid to ask questions. That is how some of my teachers in elementary school would describe me, so it was no surprise that I did not enjoy going to school. I did not like it until sixth grade when I met my science teacher, Mr. Bird, his name very fitting, as he had a knack to relate everything back to birds.
Coming in as one of only two new students at a tight knit school, I was even more nervous to start the year. But things went surprisingly well. I began to speak up in class, talk more, and actually made new friends all because of Mr. Bird. He was always very caring with all his students and treated us like his children. Mr. Bird would celebrate everyone’s accomplishments and when something really did not make sense he would never show an ounce of frustration. He was patient, kind, and was always a positive energy. I would not be here if it wasn’t for Mr. Bird.

Why Celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week?
Teachers are individuals in our society who often do not get enough praise for what they do. Our teachers at Casa are truly some of the best in the industry. They show up with a genuine smile and are filled with lots of positive energy to play with our children. They make sure to listen, help anyone who may be struggling, are flexible, creative, and patient. It is very impressive to see how they do everything so well, and their secret… they are truly dedicated to their job. Our teachers are passionate about working with children and care about their future. They are excited to come in everyday to feel their love reciprocated and watch children grow!
Because of everything that our teachers do to positively impact our children’s futures, please join us for Teacher Appreciation Week from May 2nd through the 6th! Each day there will be a special surprise we hope you will participate in.
