A Noteworthy Thank You to Teachers


 

Socrates says ‘I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think’ while Alexander the Great says ‘I am indebted to my father for living, but to my teacher for living well’ and Malcolm Forbes says ‘Education's purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one’ – guess who taught them that?

“We believe that behind every great mind is a great teacher,” says Cecille Loretizo, Post-it Brand Manager “Which is why we are honoring them for devoting their life in teaching generations of kids in hopes of re-shaping the future.”

Recently Post-it® by 3M showed their support to all teachers by being a part of the recently held A Tribute to Teachers, an annual event that honored teaching professionals. This year they’ve set up a ‘Thank You Teacher Wall’ filled with messages of gratitude written on Post-it® Notes located at SM Mega Mall, SM Mall of Asia and SM North EDSA.

Invented in 1968 by Spencer Silver and Art Fry, Post-it® products have become a staple in every teacher’s school supplies. Post-it® Notes for example have found its way to modern classrooms being used as teaching tools to aid spelling, visual learning and strategic note taking, but more importantly for writing words of encouragement to students.

“Post-it products aside from changing the way students learn and teachers teach, have also played a crucial role in strengthening the bond between the two,” says Ms. Loretizo “It’s never too late to thank your teachers with an unforgettable note.
