We know that you have a difficult job. From what we hear, grading homework and tests, planning activities and going to meetings takes up a lot of your time. In addition, we know that we can be a handful at times, too. While we may not always show it, we really appreciate what you do, and no, we can't do your job even though at times we say and act otherwise. With that being said, there are a few things we would like you to keep in mind when you are planning lessons and interacting with us throughout the school day:
Please don't be offended by this letter. We really do understand that you have a difficult job to do. There are days when we are surprised that you are able to keep a smile on your face after all that we put you through.

My heart was really touched by this letter that you guys wrote. As a teacher, I feel like I was the teacher who you wrote about. I am really hoping for my students to do this to me too.
