This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Chevrolet. All opinions are 100% mine.
It's Thanksgiving time, and who better to show thanks to than educators who serve students across America and beyond! Educators are some of the hardest working people that I know. And while they aren’t always compensated financially for their dedication and service, they do get some extra perks and special recognition during the holiday season!
I just loved getting special “thank you” notes and little gifts from my students. Last year one of my favorite “thank you” gifts was a hand painted platter that one of my kindergarten students made. She put her painted hand print in the middle of the platter and her mom wrote on it: “This little hand is reaching out to you, to say thank you for all that you do.” It was so precious and my favorite part was that she wrote all of the “sight words” that we had been studying around the border of the plate. Needless to say, I loved the gift and proudly display it in my home office.
Showing thanks is less about buying gifts and more about just showing that you care. Even a simple note, a kind word or homemade treat can mean so much to an educator!
Here are some cute ways to say “thank you” to someone in the field of education:
- Buy a $5 gift card to Red Box and wrap it up with some favorite candy.
- Offer to take over a teacher’s carpool duty or lunch duty at school. Teachers love having an extra break during the day to catch their breath.
- Have your child make a homemade card and cookies. Simple gifts are often the best!
It means a lot to anyone who works in education to know that they are being recognized for their hard work. Even companies like Chevrolet are showing their special thanks to educators! Chevrolet is offering a special Educator Discount for all teachers and school employees. What educator wouldn’t love to drive a new Chevrolet Malibu or Equinox? Chevrolet seems to understand that educators and school employees are under appreciated and often tight on funds. Through September 2015, current employees of a public or private school, university or college are eligible to participate in the new Educator Discount program and receive a discount on the purchase or lease of a new 2015 or 2014 Chevrolet vehicle. How cool is that? Be sure to stop by their website Chevrolet’s Educator Discount to check out all the details. Thank you, Chevy for appreciating educators and their dedication to their students!
So what about you, how will you show your thanks to an educator this year? Leave a comment below and share your ideas!
