Kudos to Dads

Let’s hear it for dadsthe dads who spend time with their kids, the dads (and husbands) who tolerate the long hours teachers spend doing what teachers do at school and at home, the guys who teach, and the dads who volunteer in their children’s classrooms!

Got something to say about your dad or husband or your dad volunteers? Please share!

Hooray for dads!

  1. For years I have had a kidney disease. My husband has gone to every doctor’s visit with me, without fail. August 17, 2012 I received a kidney transplant! My husband stayed with me in the hospital, sometimes sleeping on a chair, all 4 nights. We had to stay in the area in a hotel for a week after the transplant and have had many, many drives back and forth to the transplant clinic, er visits, etc. He has been with me every step of the way. He is an excellent caregiver and totally watches over me!

    Not only caregiving, he works from home so he has been able to help out with transporting the children, house cleaning, cooking, etc. He is a great dad to our 2 children, 16 & 18. I feel like I am the luckiest woman in the world!

  2. I’m an autism teacher. I have a student whose dad is his primary caregiver.
    No one could ask for a more dedicated, caring or loving dad. This student is so lucky.

  3. My Dad for always telling me You can do it.

    My husband for all his help at the school. He comes in a hangs every crazy thing I want up high, he repairs toys and has even painted furniture for me.

    But most of all I appreciate the way my husband has taught our boys to great Dads, and men.

  4. I left some things at home that I wanted to give to my students on the last day of school. My husband made a detour on his way to work to bring them to me! He cares for my students almost as much as I do. He tries to have a late start day on my first day of school so he can help make their first-day-of-school handprints.

  5. How much do I love my husband? Let me count the ways. First I am a teacher in our local Head Start. He is so supportive of me and what I do. He came to me one day and said I now understand why your program is so important. He sees now that we are NOT a babysitting organization (which is what I hear from almost everyone I speak to about my job). He at first didn’t get it. He told me that he sees that we are not only teaching them basic learning skills, we are also teaching them life skills. So that one day they will be able to say yes I can be a better person.
    My husband is understanding when I have to work late to get paper work done and he is there to let me vent when I have had a bad day. Never judging, willing to give advice and a strong shoulder to cry on when I need it.
    He has said it takes a special person to be a teacher and he is right. A teacher has to have patience, compassion and understanding. Also be strong and able to take whatever is thrown at them. So to all teachers out there I want to say thank you for being on the front lines helping our children become a better person.
