Student Thank You Cards Inspire

For many Junior Achievement volunteers, the initial anxiety of standing before a classroom of students is more than rewarded by the gratitude of grateful students. Such inspirational appreciation is often why volunteers are willing to return to the classroom again and again.Randal Mays, president of Junior Achievement of the Chisholm Trail in Fort Worth, Texas, recently provided several charming examples of student-created thank you cards given to their JA teacher, Jenny Senter. Senter also serves as director of education for JA of the Chisholm Trail. According to Mays, Senter had just completed the fourth grade JA Our Region program for students at Northbrook Elementary in Fort Worth. On the last day of class, the students presented Senter with thank you cards they created.One student wrote: "You are the best Junior Achievement teacher we have ever had. You tought us a lot. Our brain is filled with knowledge. Before you started, our brains were small. After you finished they were large."Another student wrote: "Thank you Mrs. Senter. Thank you for giving us knowledge, for in the future, we will now know everything."A third student wrote: "Thank you Mrs. Senter for all the wisdom you have gave us." (The thank-you note included the following illustration.)The Brain: Before Junior Achievement ? 30 percentAfter Junior Achievement ? 100 percentFinally, one student recapped the experience this way: "Thank you Mrs. Senter because you taught me a lot with money. So if I have money or, have a job, I now know everything."Mays summed up the meaning of the cards. "Nothing says the value of JA better than the kids!"
