Two, four, six, eight --who do we appreciate?
Every day teachers inspire our students shaping their young minds and hearts. Some of our teachers were just born to teach and others were called through life experience, but all of our teachers make our world a better place. We know as parents we have days that are extremely challenging, but the rewards of making a difference in kids' lives is what drives our teacher's passion every day. Being a teacher is about loving and connecting with our young children. And, we so grateful to have the most amazing, hard working teachers at Watch Me Grow. Even though expressing your appreciation is welcomed at any time of the year, please make sure this week to say thank you to all of our teachers for the invaluable work that they do and for their dedication to our children.

On the weekends or after work, you can also get those little bodies moving and grooving by going for a neighborhood walk or playing outside games. Neighborhood races are a great way to meet new friends. If there is a park nearby your home, go there instead for a change of scenery! Anything other than sitting around watching YouTube will help teach kids the importance of staying physically active and healthy!
