Teachers spend years sowing seeds in the hope to make fine adults. They deserve appreciation, much like the prosperous gold roses of the Highgarden!
If you have ever been a student, you would surely recall at least one teacher who taught you beyond what the books said. That human transformed your life. Olenna Tyrell might not have been mighty found of the overdose of the gold roses she had to endure, but she knew the strength they bestowed upon her. They symbolised hope, prosperity and humility like none other. Here are a few such stories, served fresh from the Twitterverse where teachers proved to be much like the gold roses of the Highgarden!

A jar full of rewards
Caught ya bein’ good jar is back! Love using this reward system to promote random acts of kindness. This term I’m letting my Grade 7s elect each other. pic.twitter.com/skmuiIjMb8

Inking words go a long way
One small act can be so powerful. My kids have been making personalized kindness notes for each other at home and have been asking to read as a reward for being bucket fillers. I love how our classroom community has grown this year. ♥️ @CESMiniCougars @MPCSVA #mpcsconnects pic.twitter.com/5CD6K8dIZV

Points of kindness
Our students have been working hard to earn PBIS points called “Starbucks”. They can redeem them for various items. Tyson is a 4th grader & has been saving his points to read to another class. Today he chose to read to a special 1st grader..his sister who’s celebrating her bday! pic.twitter.com/cKvj5J2os3

Learning the comprehensive way
Today in second grade, we’re doing a kite building STEAM project. Students are measuring, following directions, engineering, working well with classmates, and being creative.#steamprojects @JoeWalkerES #Mc3G pic.twitter.com/92TGtIhzHW

Math can be fun? Math can be fun!
Had some fun exploring 3D shapes today with my grade 2s! Many of my students thanked me for allowing them to skip math today😂… little did they know they were participating in math the entire time! #teacherwin #math ✔️✍🏼👩🏽🏫 pic.twitter.com/kSlgoAJJNz
