Teachers come in all shapes and sizes (photo above features our favorite, awe-inspiring and amazingly talented wire teacher, Lynne Merchant), and I believe that we are ALL teachers in some way to one other.
There are some though, that have dedicated their lives to this path, choosing a career in educating and caring for our communities and youth in a way that is amazing and SOOO APPRECIATED! Thank you for investing your time and energy in EVERYONE’S future – Mahalo to all our teachers out there!!
*Dear Teachers: Please come in for a free necklace gift through May 13th!
Ellie's Thoughts As She Graduates From High School
Our youngest employee, Ellie, is graduating from high school this month and she chose 4 necklace styles for our Teacher Appreciation Giveaway 2017!
Read on to see why. It made me smile.
Yesterday Today Tomorrow / Today Tomorrow Forever
A letter to all my past, current, and future teachers/mentors: All those times you spent tutoring me in factoring… Let me retake a chapter test… It’s not for nothing. We appreciate the time you spend and the amount of effort you put into teaching. We can tell you care. I just wanted to tell you, your impact on my life will last forever.
Key to Success
I chose this lil charm set because I think teachers are the key to success. My teachers have been there for me to understand lessons in the curriculum and in navigating life. Many of my teachers studied other things in college but ultimately decided on teaching because they wanted to help others, and I thank them for that. Long hours after school ends tutoring kids and correcting homework, all for the better of our futures.
What Goes Around Comes Around
This charm strikes me because many of my teachers (at Pearl City High School) are also alumni. More than half of the math department climbed the four flights of stairs to the top of A building and cheered for PCHS to win at homecoming. Their teachers shaped them into wonderful teachers who will shape the teachers of tomorrow.
