    we must show our teachers our

    Hello,
    OK, I just wanna know if the sentence below is grammatically correct

    'we must show our teachers our love/gestures of appreciation'

    Is the use of our correct in the sentence? If not do rectify it.

    Say:

    We should give our teachers our love and our respect and show them that we appreciate what they do for us.

    That's a lot of uses of "our", Tarheel. I'd go with the simpler "We must show our teachers love and respect and show that we appreciate what they do for us". I see no need for "our love" and "our respect". You can't show someone somebody else's love and respect, only your own.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
