Last week was Teacher Appreciation Week.
Let’s take a look at what happened.Or, more accurately, what I received.
Monday: laptop bag, umbrella with flashlight handle, assorted fruit, and letter of appreciation
Tuesday: lunch at Musashi, a benihana-style restaurant
I had the Hibachi Filet, but only remembered to take a picture halfway through the meal.
Wednesday: favorite candy bar – Kinder!
You might not teach “kinder”garten, but who doesn’t love chocolate!
Thursday: strawberry shortcake at lunch
Friday: “Teacher Survival Kit”
Tootsie Roll – “your efforts keep education rolling”
Band-Aid – “to make things better”
Junior Mints – “help keep your cool”
Life Savers – “‘saver’ the special moments”
Laffy Taffy – “keep your sense of humor”
Tea Bags – “take time to relax”
One fellow teacher game me some Mexican Hot Chocolate brownies – spicy and delicious. From students, I received several doughnuts, two oranges, a granola bar, and money for books. I used the money to purchase Trigger Warnings and Dangerous Creatures. It took me quite some time to make up my mind, as I didn’t know if I wanted to buy two books from the discount area or one more expensive book, which would have been either Folklore of the Discworld or Søren Kierkegaard: Selected Spiritual Writings.
By far, this was the best Teacher Appreciation Week I’ve had.
