This was my return trip to Watervliet Elementary School.  This time it was to celebrate a day for ALL teachers.  It's Teacher Appreciation Week! 

Mrs Grill and Mrs Martin are both great examples of fantastic Capital Region educators. Their group of 4th graders were eager to start writing and singing. I love it when it's not akin to pulling teeth to get some ideas going.

They even came up with their own tune for this, which is extremely creative on their part.

Check this out!

 

Here are the lyrics to their brilliant creation ( and they did it in about an hour!)

      We appreciate our teachers - school's really fun

      We get a lot of work and we always get it done

      Our teachers always help us if we're stuck

       On really hard tests they give us good luck

       We're from Watervliet, and our teachers are neat

      It's National Teachers Week

      You may think that teachers work 6 hours a day

       But when we go home, they all have to stay

      There's Ms Martin and Mrs. Grill

      They work very hard and they always will

       We're from Watervliet, and our teachers are neat

      It's National Teachers Week
