I’m a big believer in saying thank you to those around you. And working in the public school system, I know how hard teachers and school employees work each day. So I love Teacher Appreciation Week. Let me clarify – I love doing things for my kid’s teachers. I work in a school where nothing is really done for the staff. I believe the thought is “that’s what you get a paycheck for.” Is that terrible or what?!?! Who doesn’t want a little “thanks for all you do”???
I know it would be easier and less time consuming to just go buy a gift card and stick it in a card. But I like to show that we put some time into it and some thought. Or is something simple enough/better? What do you think?
I remember as a kid making a “candy gram” for a family friend. It was fun coming up with what to say and how to fit candy bars into the sentences. I thought maybe my kids would get a kick out of it too. So we sat down with a pencil and piece of paper and started writing what we wanted to say.
Then came the fun part – the gluing.
