There’s no doubt that teachers play an important role in the lives of young people all over the world. They help our children learn, grow, and play. They teach them to dream big and work hard to achieve their goals. Teachers help our children gain the confidence they need to realize their full potential. It’s funny to think that these influential role models are people you may have met only once or twice. Unless you’re a regular volunteer in the classroom, you’ve probably only had the opportunity to meet your child’s teacher during back-to-school night or parent teacher conferences. This holiday, give them the perfect knit gift that lets them know they are appreciated.
