Here at Quizlet, we believe teachers deserve our appreciation every single day. So obviously, we’re here for Teacher Appreciation Day, especially this year.
Teachers have gone above and beyond, pivoting between remote learning, hybrid models and masked in-person lessons. All the while, they have done their very best to engage students and build the next generation of thinkers through Zoom lessons or plexiglass.
We know there’s nothing we can do that will equal the monumental effort teachers have made this year. But in the spirit that nothing is better than homemade, we wrote you a poem celebrating the awesomeness of teachers. We hope you enjoy it.
Pandemics and academics are not a good mix
It was up to our teachers to offer a fix
So let’s celebrate them, they’re doing their best
Giving lessons, telling stories, devising the tests
They’re up early each morning, not sure what’s ahead
“Is today a remote day or a hybrid instead?
It’s hard to prepare for this class in advance
Oh wait, it’s IN-PERSON! Better put on some pants!”
Teaching kids during Covid is a challenging task
“Suzie, what did you say? Can you take off your mask?”
An hour of this could make anyone grouchy
Thank goodness for the vaccine and dear Doctor Fauci!
Yes, the heroes are many in this challenging time
The doctors and nurses, the folks on the line
And our teachers are right there, heroic as well
Finding new ways to reach, to teach and excel
Lots of schools have reopened and kids are in class
Our teachers are happy because this virus will pass
You see, Zoom’s not a classroom and remote can’t replace
A hug or a handshake, a well-earned embrace
We appreciate teachers, we salute what they do
Underpaid, overworked yet they always pull through
They rise to the challenge and answer the call
They’re a reason why “normal” will come in the Fall
It’s time to applaud them and laud them with praise
But that’s not enough time to give them a raise!
