Dear Teacher,

I don’t know about you, but I am swamped with a million things to do and time to do about one or two.  So, blog time is kind of on the back-burner at the moment.  For that reason, today I going to be a little different.

I am going to link a whole bunch of my theme song posts, and I want you to pick your favorite, come back here and share which one you like most and why, and then share your favorite post in your social networks.  Tomorrow I will look at the comments and the stats for the posts and declare the “All-Time Favorite Theme Song Post.”

Who’s in?

Alright, well, check out a few, pick your fave, come talk about it, and then share the link with your friends.  Which one do you think will win?  🙂

Which will be your theme this week?  Why?  Share it!

You are awesome!  I know you will rock this week.  I hope you found a theme song to help you rock it harder!  You are amazing and you are making a difference.  Keep on teaching, Teacher!

Love, Teacher

Dear Teacher,

For me, this is the last full week before teachers go back to school for the new year.  I have so much planning and other things that I want to get done!  I think I am going to have to chill it with the blog for this week.  So…this week will be the “Best of Dear Teacher/Love Teacher.”  I am going to post links to several posts from the last three months, and then I am going to give you a challenge.  I want you to pick your favorite, share why it is your favorite, and then share it everywhere that you can (Edmodo, Facebook, Twitter, etc…).

Today is the best of the weekly theme songs.  Because there have not been that many, I am going to share a link to all of them.  Which is your favorite?

My favorite is Stronger.  That song has been in my head a lot since I found out the results of the State Tests.  I know that I can use the unmet expectations as fuel for next year.  It is driving me to work harder to have things together for my students and to use what I have learned to be more effective in years to come.  I am stronger, and I will continue to get stronger!

Which is your favorite?  Why?  Go out and share the encouragement!

You are awesome!  You are amazing!  This year will be the best one yet, I just know it!  Keep on teaching and keep on getting stronger, Teacher!

Love, Teacher

PS…I have an idea.  I want to compile stories about teachers who have made a difference in peoples’ lives.  It can be a story or a “Dear Teacher ___________” thank you letter.  I want to share them on here and maybe in a couple of other ways (possibly a book).  If you are interested, email dearteacher@outlook.com and put “Teacher Story” or “Teacher Thank You Letter” in the subject.  Thanks.  I am excited about this project!
