Those little personal notes mean so much to the kids who get them. You are a great teacher, Jenn.


You make a difference in the lives of kids and that's one of the most admirable things ever! YOU deserve a big Thank You; I hope you got a few!


What a fantastic gesture.

What a nice touch Jenn, it shows them that you really care.


Aww, that's really sweet. My English teacher instilled in me the importance of thank you notes. I bet that made your students feel really good!

I bet these kids will keep these thank you cards always. Nice touch, teacher!


I still remember notes and comments from my teachers.

The girl who attracts the boys - will you be able to keep tabs on her at all or work as a mentor? It sounds like she could use one.

I love this! Love, love, love.


I still remember being so awed by a note one of my teachers wrote to me in high school. I had no idea he though so well of me. It was inspiring. So are you as a teacher!


What a wonderful idea. I still have notes from throughout my life, including a note a teacher at my school wrote me when I didn't make the varsity soccer team. It is a treasure.


MM received a note from his Lit teacher, so I can vouch for the preciousness of those cards.

Our kids created homemade autograph books and I was signing them until they walked out the door on the last day. I could definitely take a page from your playbook on great stuff to say while you're saying goodbye.


You are Awesome! More people should do this. I wrote the two girls I worked with (at my first nanny job) letters about the people they were, and the things I appreciated about them at that time. Their mom cried when she read them, and tucked them away in a safe place for the future.


I love the ones that you shared. It sounds like it was a great adventure!

Baby Favorite

Those words could truly be life-changing for those kids. EXACTLY why I wanted to become a teacher!

You should be VERY proud of yourself. They've been so blessed to know and learn from you.


You are a most excellent teacher. I don't recall any one of mine ever thanking students like that. Good on you.


This is so awesome. I know some kids won't care much, but there will be some kids who treasure this note and keep it for YEARS. I still have a book my 3rd grade teacher gave me for my reading that she inscribed a wonderful message in! Such a treasure. That's a sign of a great teacher! :)

Nanny Jobs

When writing your resume, always do your best to accentuate the positive aspects of your career. Try to show the value in what you have to offer a potential employer. Always disclose important negative information, but the highlights of your resume should put a positive spin on any negative aspects.
