You may be aware that this week is teacher appreciation week. There are few people who I appreciate more in my family’s life more than my children’s teachers. My kids are in daycare pretty long hours – I usually drop them off around 7/7:30 and pick them up anywhere between 4:30 and 5:30. They spend a lot of time with their teachers, and those teachers have been critical in helping to develop my kids into the cute little beings that they are today. My kids also LOVE these women. They will run into school and give them great big hugs and they constantly talk about them outside of school as well.
Their teachers have truly built the foundation for their school years – they have helped to ensure that they are excited about learning, they have taught them how to foster positive relationships with other students, and they have ensured that as parents, I know everything about my child’s learning experience, and have engaged me in that process.
I feel SO lucky to have been exposed to such strong teachers already in my kid’s education, and I can only hope that it continues over time. It is hard to express how grateful I am for all they do, and this week I really want to do something special. I typically go with a gift certificate on special occasions – coffee, ice cream, manicure, restaurant, or target are some of my favorites, because I know that they rarely treat themselves. I was hoping to spice things up a bit though, and add a bit of creativity. I wanted to share with you some of my favorite finds on other blogs, to hopefully inspire you as well!
Thank you so much to all of those teachers out there – especially my children’s teachers!
