The Best Teacher Ever

By kimberly

The other night Owen chose Mercer Mayer’s The Best Teacher Ever as his bedtime book.  If you are not familiar with the story, Teacher Appreciation day is coming up at Little Critter’s school, and Little Critter can’t find just the right present to give to Miss Kitty, who is the Best Teacher Ever.  After a few mishaps, Little Critter ends up drawing Miss Kitty a picture, and she proudly displays it on the classroom bulletin board.

This story resonated with Owen, who loves his classroom teacher.  As parents, we are so thankful that he has a teacher who teaches the Whole Child that makes Owen who he is.  She has created a community in her classroom that allows our son to grow to love learning.  And that is the best gift she could give Owen.  In his eyes, she is the Best Teacher Ever, and during his first year in school, we can’t ask for any more than that!

    I would love for every Heritage child to come home with that kind of love for their teacher and love for learning. It takes committed people to craft and environment that is strong and healthy for children. And those people deserve our support, effort, resources, and energy.
