If kids come to us from strong, healthy functioning families, it makes our job easier.  If they do not come to us from strong, healthy, functioning families, it makes our jobs more important.  
-Barbara Colorose 

My heart was gushing when I read this quote! I LOVE IT!  I love this quote because it is so true.  Sometimes it is hard to stop and remember those very words when we have a tough year or tough students.  I think it is perfect for Teacher Appreciate Week!   Teacher Appreciation Week is a great time to reflect on our jobs and how much teaching affects our lives and the lives around us.  

Because we know you are awesome, (Our supporters and our inspiration...YOU!), and because we know that you are important to the lives of our students, we want to celebrate our teachers!! To show you how much you mean to us...we want to give away one of four $25 gift cards.  That is amazing!!!  

To enter to win one of the four gift cards, just click below to head on over to the giveaway!!!!  

What a great prize right???  Shoot...I never ever mind getting gift cards to be appreciated. Ha!  What would you spend your gift card on?  

Here is what I would get...


LOOK AT THIS AWESOME LETTER TRAY!!  It looks totally vintage, don't you think?  I may have too many papers, though!  :)

LAMINATING POUCHES!!!   To the non-teacher person, this may seem a little lame but to a teacher???? OMG...give me those things.  I must laminate EVERYTHING!!!  Especially, this particular brand.  Four under $9 bucks??  You could get two packs!!  

I so NEED a new water/Diet Mountain Dew/tea glass!!  :)  Honestly, I don't think I could ever run out of these cold cups.  I go through them like water. 

Teachers Pay Teachers??  
SOOO dangerous!!!!  I am like a teacher in clip art store.  Definitely hitting Kate Hadfield's TPT shop?   Have you seen her work???  Oh my is gorgeous!!!!!!   You should check her out by clicking on her button!!  

Okay...I have to get back to work, friends!  Sigh...boy, that was an awesome shopping my mind!!!  :)   A teacher can dream, right?

Can you believe the year is almost over?  I am finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel and I am sooo sooo excited!!   My students have a wore me out.  See this pup?  I know that tired.  But I know have the summer to refresh and that is WONDERFUL! 

By the way...thank you for being such a great teacher, and such a great role model to our kiddies.  And thank you for giving our students the love, guidance, and knowledge only a teacher can give.  You rock, friends!!!!
