teacher appreciation week

since this is my first year of “school,”  i never really know what i am supposed to do for holidays and things like teacher appreciation week.  i mean, when i was teaching i occasionally got gifts from my students, but it wasn’t that common.

but of course i appreciate the squirm’s teachers and want to let them know.  he has five teachers though….

funny that teacher appreciation week is right next to mother’s day, a holiday that presents a similar problem for me.  i have one mom, one step-mom, and two mothers-in-law.  i found a gift for my mom, but it is thursday and i haven’t gotten my act together (beyond reminding mr p) to do anything about the rest of the moms.

but i digress….the teachers.  i have taken small gifts to the squirm’s head start teachers in the past, but didn’t really get much response from them. i guess it isn’t completely too late for me to get something for them, but i haven’t so far.

i made a card for our new teachers at ppcd (see above).  the squirm drew them a picture and then i got each of the three ladies a $5 gift card for sonic.  i might relent and get mcd’s cards for the other two ladies in the morning….because although we have had our differences, i do really appreciate them.

    Several teachers weighed in with their thoughts.

    Love the picture that Squirm drew!
