Teacher Appreciation

7 May

I’m telling you, nobody appreciates full-time teachers like a part-time substitute!  I try to be creative with my teacher appreciation gifts, and give them something they’ll use, and not just another ceramic apple or hand-made crayon picture.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure they adore every child’s hand-made gift, but I’m sure they’re also pretty excited for that Michael’s gift card, or restaurant gift-card, or even a case of their favorite drink (green tea/pepsi/red-bull).  So Here’s a few of the things I put together, and, although I’d Looooooooove to claim these ideas as my own, they are not, so I am including the websites of the wonderful blog I found these from. 

For Every Teacher he has, including Speech Therapist and Bus driver, I made these:
