Thankful Teachers

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Out of the Blue looks to Legend’s staff to discover their greatest inspirations.

By Tara Higgins

We can all name a few teachers we’re thankful for, those amazing people who have put up with us for almost four months and potentially even longer. They are the ones who inspire us to learn everyday.

Now, who or what are they most thankful for? We asked for teachers to name the most influential person – or thing – in their life. Here’s what they had to say:

  1. Who or what are you most thankful for?

I’m most thankful for my family. I’m thankful for healthy kids and the relationship we share.

Amanda Bucher, English

I am most thankful for my amazing family (my son Uriah seems to get cuter by the day!! I’m so thankful for his health and vibrant spirit!) … But currently, I am also super thankful for my boss, Mr. Simington. He has been a professional and personal rock for me lately. He cares about his students and teachers wholeheartedly and it’s really, really cool!

I am very thankful for my family, my husband, and my son . . .and I’m very thankful to be teaching at Legend High School, also part of my family.

Jordan Ivey, Social Studies

I am most thankful for my family, my wife, and my son Sam who is seven months old, so this will be his first Thanksgiving. Both of our families are close so we get to see them a lot, especially this time of year, so it’ll be interesting to see what he does.

  1. Do you have a special way to celebrate Thanksgiving?

Sandi Gregston, Science

We make lots of food and all eat together at one big table. Before we start eating, we share what we are thankful for with each other.

Amanda Bucher, English

We just celebrate with family and lots of turkey… Always going around the dinner table to discuss what we are thankful for!

Usually we work every day except for Thanksgiving at school half the time, but usually on Thanksgiving Day we go up to my sister-in-law’s in Colorado Springs and she cooks.

We switch every other year with whose family we’re with. This year we’ll be with my wife’s family for Thanksgiving, so I usually show up with sweats and a hoodie.
