Anyway, I took matters into my own hands and spent some time on Pinterest. What was life like before Pinterest? I highly regret procrastinating joining for so long! Each day, I chose a small item to send in for Big Sis' awesomely wonderful teacher. Here's what I came up with for Monday.
(Sorry, had to blur out her name for anonymity.)
Wednesday's gift was for a "Tea-rrific" Teacher:
Thursday was, by far, my favorite. The teacher wasn't going to be there on Friday, so I scrapped my Thursday idea and went right for the best idea. It was a bento box filled with candy bars, gum, and mints. I bought one sheet of black scrapbook paper and cut it to fit the top. Then, I printed a slightly smaller piece of paper with the teacher's name and the word "Stash." I thought about spelling it "Stache," but decided against it. Then with the same piece of black paper, I traced one of my photo booth mustaches and glued it in the center. She specifically mentioned how much she liked the stash!
Sadly, my daughter was the only one in the class the entire week that gave any kind of recognition. Boo. Teachers work hard and deserve to be appreciated. I didn't spend all that much, but coming in to a surprise every day was fun for her, I'm sure.
So, mark your calendars for next year and celebrate the first week of May - Teacher Appreciation Week!
