Thanks for Teaching Us is a site that allows students to publicly thank their teachers. I blogged about it 3 years ago, and thought it would be good to mention it again. Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week in the U.S. (May 4th-8th), and teachers are always thankful for heart-felt words from their students. If they have permission to have their work and first name on the internet, allow them to type their thanks on this site. Once it is posted, the letter can be e-mailed to the teacher. Searches can be done on the site, as well, for teachers and schools that have already received thanks.
