In celebration of 'Teacher Appreciation Day' on May 9, KVUE asked eight second-graders at Round Rock Christian Academy about what makes a great teacher, why we need 'Teacher Appreciation Day' and how to show them our appreciation. 

"I would probably like to give her a hug and say, 'Thank you for all you've done,'" said Saxton Cervantes about his favorite teacher, who is also his mom.

"I think we need that day because teachers work very hard on teaching us some stuff," Anna Tam said about why students should show teachers their appreciation.

"I think they need to be appreciated more," Grayson Chandler explained.

We agree.
