From elementary school all the way through high school and beyond, teachers have their hands full managing often overcrowded classrooms while trying to get through the day’s lessons. Then there’s homework assignments to keep track of, standardized tests to prepare for, papers to grade… the list goes on.
But the most important part of a teacher’s job is to nurture the children in their classes, to make sure those kids are equipped to become kind and successful adults.
A school in Portugal recently hung posters in the halls addressed to the students’ parents, reminding them that teachers are not the only ones tasked with teaching their children… It starts at home.
We would like to remind you that magic words such as hello, please, you’re welcome, I’m sorry, and thank you, all begin to be learned at home.
