Thanking Our Teachers for Their Commit-Mint!
May 12, 2022
For Teacher Appreciation Week this year, YWCA Minneapolis celebrated by thanking our early childhood center staff for all of their hard work and dedication to the children and families in our programs. Leadership gifted staff cards and special treats with these fun quotes:
“Thank You for Your Commit-Mint”
“You Make Learning Sweet.”
The children also made thank you cards for their teachers, and families took the time to post special appreciation notes. The staff also received gift cards personally handed out by our president and CEO, Shelley Carthen Watson, thanks to a special donation from Rae Wellness. Rae Wellness is a women-led and values-driven company with a goal to make well-being attainable and accessible for all.
In the past, our Girls Inc. program has partnered with Rae Wellness by participating in a “Shine Challenge” dedicated to encouraging girls to find moments of inner peace and hope, while dedicating time for self-care. Teacher Appreciation Week gave us a chance to turn the spotlight on our teachers and let them “shine” with the admiration they deserve!
We are so grateful for the work and commitment of all our Early Childhood Education staff. They do the important work of our mission every single day!
