A Little Appreciation for Teachers

As a relatively new blogger, I have learned a great deal about blogging from some very talented bloggers and teachers. They invited me into their classrooms and their lives. I truly do appreciate all I have learned in a short time. Hats off to all of you dedicated teachers out there.

The beginning of May is the perfect time to show some appreciation for teachers everywhere. As we strive to complete all tests and tasks before the last day, we can use a little encouragement. In a previous post I wrote about the awesome fundraiser our PTO does every spring. The hard work accomplished by a dozen or so parents is amazing. What I find more incredible is the fact that while all this is going on in the foreground, this same group of parents are also planning a week devoted to just teachers and staff. Everyday this week we will be treated to lunch by our supportive parents. Our lunch schedule for the week:
Monday:
Country Picnic
Tuesday:
Mexican Fiesta
Wednesday:
Soup and Salad Buffet
Thursday:
Italian Feast
Friday:
Breakfast for Lunch

No need to think about what I can grab for lunch, as I pack my bags in the morning. I can concentrate on doing what I love, teaching. We will also get a token of appreciation from our administration, and countless thank you's from our students. The P always reminds them on Monday that they should honor us throughout the week. I have one that is making some goodies just for me!

How will you be recognized for your hard work? Link up with Show Me Sunday on 3-6 Free Resources and share your plans.
