Tyler staff members share the following messages of thanks:

“I've been teaching for 17 years, and never has anyone ever done so many kind things for a building full of educators. In a time of so many different stressful things going around, you all brought so very many smiles! Even just one of the eight days would have made us excited, but eight days and gifts! So over and beyond. I don't even really have the words to express how grateful I am. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!!” - Laura Jurgens, Literacy Support Specialist

“As providers of good nutrition, we, in the cafeteria, appreciate all your kind gestures and gifts more than you can imagine. Since we are usually behind the scenes, we don't get much in the way of recognition sometimes, so having these little treats and lunches are so important to keep up our morale daily. It's especially appreciated during this time. Just knowing that someone out there really sees us can make all the difference in our day. Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.” - The Entire Food and Nutrition Staff at Tyler

“I can't thank you enough to be so thoughtful and considering us during this difficult time! You found a way to do something spectacular for teachers in the middle of this pandemic and it has truly inspired me to find a way to give in spite of all the restrictions. Having people like you who care for others and take time to show it, is Truly the Gift of this Holiday! God Bless You a Thousand-Fold, and Thank you, Thank You so much!” - Angela Woodward, 2nd grade teacher

“Teaching can be a very stressful job. Teaching during a pandemic is absolute crazy town. With things as difficult as they have been, it's really great to know and feel like someone cares about you and what you do. Thank you so much for thinking of us. It's almost hard not to get choked up . . . all of the gifts, snacks, and activities. These things have made it a little easier to push through to the break.” - Lindsay Jackson, 5th grade teacher
