Thank you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Aside from being a mom, one of my life goals was to be a teacher. I have always loved children, inspiring others, educating, and learning. Everything I have learned from my lifetime came from family and teachers. I truly believe teachers are a second family. They are the people there, supporting you, encouraging you, caring for you. While my goals to become a teacher were sidelined when I had Thomas, that love, appreciation, and admiration is always there. I will always be eternally grateful to all of the teachers I have known in my lifetime. They are the makers, the inspirers, the foundation.
With that being said. Happy Teacher’s Appreciation Week! This year our Thomas stepped up to kindergarten and what an incredible year. He has learned and grown so much. His wonderful teacher has been the one keeping us updated, watching over him, and including us in everything. It has been a huge year, so exciting and wonderful.
I have been lucky enough to volunteer almost each week in class. Getting to know all the great kids in Thomas’s class has been beyond wonderful, but getting to know the teacher was the icing on the cake. Mrs. May’s is without a doubt one of the most kind, thoughtful, and friendly teachers I have had the opportunity to get to know. So when it came to Teacher Appreciation Week, I knew, I wanted all of us to do something special.
For our gift, Thomas and I filled a galvanized bucket with the linen towels we made, a few pictures on a seashell photo holder, Escape Moonlit Walk Candle, Hello Weekend Pencils, All Natural Fudge Mint Cookies, Tic Tacs, a gift card to GAP inc., Starbucks Iced Coffee Mix, Krave Beef Jerky, and some homemade pistachio nut & mixed berry snack. It was great to have Thomas walking around the store telling me what he thought his teacher would like.
Happy Teacher Appreciation Week. Thank you to Mrs. Mays and all of you wonderful teachers, teachers aides, administrators, and coaches out there!
