Completely Overcome with Gratitude

Last week was Teacher Appreciation Week!! 

I hope you all had a great week and felt appreciated, I know that I did!

This is my first year teaching at a private school and I have loved it! The support I have received from my parents is outstanding. I've never experienced anything like it before.

I am not making this post to boast or brag about my week last week, but mostly for myself. So that I never forget the amazing experience I have had this year, and the gratitude that fills my heart.

Let me explain. Each day last week there was a different theme for parents to go along with to show their child's teacher their appreciation. I'm going to explain each day mostly by the picture of gifts I received:

Tuesday- We love our teacher "bunches"
(We don't have school on Monday's)

First, I saw this hanging by my door when I got to school! My cute kids made it for me in art class last week. Such a fun surprise!

When my kids entered our classroom, they came bearing gifts! Gifts of flowers! (sorry the first picture isn't the best!) They were so excited to give me their gifts and it was so much fun! It was a complete surprise to me! I had no idea each day would have a "theme" to go along with. A few other kids gave me other things besides flowers, but I forgot to take a picture of them!!

Wednesday- My teacher is so "sweet"
My kids all ran into the classroom to give me my sweet treats on Wednesday!

This is a picture of all the things I took home on Wednesday! {CRAZY!}

Thursday- My teacher is "berry" amazing 
These are a few close up pictures of cards my kids made for me and some of the fun treats I got from them! 

This card almost made me cry! It was so cute!! Also, a berry appreciated basket full of all things strawberry! Starbursts, licorice, gum, drink, kool-aid, jello, breakfast bars etc. A-DOR-A-BLE!!

I got some berry applesauce, two different jars of jam and some berry chapstick {complete with a giraffe card and zebra bag}

 Also a strawberry candle, yogurt covered blueberries, chocolate covered strawberries & gummy bears with this note attached, "I'm sharing my favorite treat with those who are so sweet!"

Friday-I'm not exactly sure what the theme was on Friday, but everyone gave me cards!

 I am completely overwhelmed by the appreciation that was shown to me last week! I am so grateful for the job that I have, for the students that I am able to love this year & the parents that I've gotten to know and befriend. Thank you for allowing me to share this post  with you and I hope you all had a wonderful teacher appreciation week.....I APPRECIATE YOU!!
