In the poem The Gift by Li-Young Lee, I believe the figurative “gift” portrays a memory of compassion and forgiveness. In the beginning of the tale, the narrator recites a memory from his childhood; a memory of his father pulling out a metal splinter buried within his skin. As the poem recites, “the flames of discipline he raised above my head,” displaying that his father's anger was directed above his head and not precisely at him. This shows the affectionate and merciful side of his dad, as he was trying his best not to scream, but be there to comfort him. Now, later in life, when the once young boy is now a man, he does the same with his wife. His wife has a splinter and it is now his turn to take the same position as his father

Dear Ms. Wheeler, I have known you for two years already and they have been the best; unlike my French. You are always there for me and I appreciate that. I wish you nothing but the best. You’re truly amazing. I like how whenever something is wrong you take my feelings into consideration and actually show you care. You always want to make sure your students are okay. Thank you for everything you have done for me.
My purpose in applying for a Master's Degree in Organizational Leadership is to advance my academic career through the qualities and the values of Jesuit teachings and to expand my ability to become an effective leader. As part of my personal goal, I would like to be a bridge
A gift that is pure, with no strings attached given with untainted caring is so much more meaningful than a gift that is given with ties attached to it. Most Secwepemc gave their gifts in the former approach. Gifts were given without any expectation. Such was the way of the Secwepemc that we expected to count on those that had accepted our help. The gift to the ‘unknown stranger’ was not given with a demand to help the tribe. It is more than just an understanding, it is a deep respect. There were no ties attached to the gift given to the ‘unknown stranger’ it was more of an understanding to help those that have helped you.
Gifts are things (whether that money or have a value of money) giving in the workplace with a value of $10 or greater.
I have appreciated much of the process in which I have journeyed over the last few years. Many of my classes have not only taught me things, but have given me insight into myself, my children, friends and family. I have learned to apply some of the lessons learned with how I would react to issues, interpret scenarios and motivate myself.
She made learning fun and always rewarded academics and behavior. She showed me the importance of building relationships with my students. I make it a habit of eating lunch with my students every day and discussing matters that are important to them. I also had some wonderful teachers and experience at Daniel Middle school. My senior year at Jordan High School was a very difficult year. Halfway through the school year, I found out I was pregnant. Then, at six months pregnant my water broke and I was hospitalized and continued my education from my hospital room. Nonetheless, my teachers (especially Mrs. Jacobs) supported and encouraged me and I could graduate with my class. In a nutshell, the compassion and dedication from many teachers, faculty, principals, of the Muscogee County School District influenced me to become a teacher. I strongly feel that my story greatly impacts how I teach. It is my desire that many of my students that come from low economic conditions like I did will know that their teacher cares for them and that someone is on their side. Moreover, I would like to instill in them that your environment does not have to determine your future. I want them to know that I grew up just like them and just like I graduated from high school and college

When people think of gifts, they often think of material items such as jewelry, perfume, or a new phone. Gifts do not have to be tangible objects but, instead, may be feelings that are shared. Sharing a feeling with another person is a gift that both individuals benefit from. SC Johnson
Furthermore, I do not regret a single part of this year, and even parts of eighth grade I was dreading, such as the National History Day project, turned out to be wonderful learning experiences that I genuinely enjoyed participating in. Thank you, teachers for continuing to find ways to encourage our further learning. Thank you, fellow classmates for helping me and making me smile. Thank you, Mrs. Arzola, Mrs. Chung, and all of the South Pointe staff for investing in so many new programs. And finally, thank you to the whole South Pointe community for supporting each other as we all continued to grow together and find out what our true passions are. I am both excited and extremely nervous for my journey into high school, and I can only hope to find another school as great as this one, that will continue to shape our lives just as South Pointe has. So, as we exit the grounds today and move onto high school, I can’t help but think that we will all reconvene here when our children will have the privilege of walking in our
Dr. Appleton, Where do I even begin? Well, first off…. THANK YOU! You have no idea the impact you have made on not only my life, but so many others. Speaking on behalf of my peers, you truly are a one-of-a-kind and remarkable professor. In my time at Eastern Kentucky University as an undergrad in the History Department, I had my fair share of good, bad and okay professors. You are in none of those categories because you created one for yourself.
This is Kaydence Mullin. Hi remember me? Haha okay well i'm writing this to say thank you in many different ways. Thank you for helping me with my math. Thank you for clearing all the rumors about me. Thank you for being an amazing teacher. Honestly in 2nd grade I thought i had the best teacher ever! Then i got you and proved myself wrong. I remember out of all our teachers you always made sure that my mom's comfortable with all my field trips because she's a little over protective haha. Well,thank you so much for being the greatest 5th grade teacher ever.
I nominated Mr. Macoubrie for the annual Lincoln Public Schools Thank You Teacher event. I know a lot of students say this but he assists, cares, and respects us. We respect him because he is an exceptional teacher, friend, counselor, role model and so much more. Without Mr. Macoubrie as a teacher, 7th grade would have been a lot harder. I’ve had so many times where I talked to Mr. Macoubrie about something that was bothering me or something that I had to get off my chest. He doesn't judge you for being yourself, instead he encourages us to be ourselves. The most heartwarming part of it all is that he believes in us... Some teachers say they do but he shows that he does.

I’d also like to thank our parents for always supporting us, driving us to our classes whether it is school or extracurriculars, and for standing by is though the easy and though.
