Teacher Appreciation 2012 …

Spend five minutes in an elementary school classroom and you probably think like I do:  “How does the teacher remain so calm?”  Don’t get me wrong. I love little children.  But it is no easy task to herd 25 of them around all day and maintain composure.

So for the final day of Teacher Appreciation I knocked off the old “Keep Calm and Carry On Poster” for RedDog’s teacher. Instead of a crown, an apple.  Instead of “carry on”, “teach on”.  And the background in a cheery schoolroom red, of course.

I created the print on my computer, but had it professionally printed for a nicer finish.  Then I slipped it into a $3.99 frame from Target for a total $5 gift.  Of course I had to wrap it with a gigantic bow, because I’m obnoxious like that.  But I did include a sincere note of thanks and admiration for the teacher.

I’ve left out one of the gifts I made this week, but I’ll have to cover it next week.  The Food Drive culminates tomorrow so I’ve got ants in my pants.  I’m nervous/excited!  Will we meet our goal of 120,000 pounds of food?  Will the hearts of our community members be open to giving to their fellow men?  I sure hope so.  Would you like to do me a favor today? Say a quick prayer for our Food Drive to be a huge success!

I’ll be posting something special on Mother’s Day if you’d like to join me.  Happy Weekend to you all!

Your grand finale was just that, GRAND!

I think the teacher will be delighted and feel very much appreciated.

Is it just me or does anyone else find the word verification hard to decipher?
