Teacher Appreciation Gift Idea

12:26 AM

It's Teacher Appreciation Week, so hats off to all educators!  Having my own son in school makes me think back to some of my favorite teachers.  I was painfully shy as a kid, and my 2nd Grade teacher Ms. Snowden told me if I ever wanted to just yell out in class, I could.  My 6th Grade/gifted class teacher, Ms. Graham, brought so much excitement and joy to the classroom.  And my 11th Grade History teacher Mr. Smith, who I mentioned on Instagram, could make you feel as though you were walking thru time.  I never liked history before that, and was amazed at how interesting it could be if you just had the right teacher.   Everyone has that special teacher who makes a difference in their education.  And if they didn't teach the masses, they couldn't make an impact on us personally.

This year my son's art teacher received a grant from Target to take several classes on a field trip to the High Museum of Art.  His primary teacher has not only been a good teacher but very compassionate as well.   I would imagine more than anything, teachers appreciate the expression of thankfulness for their hard work.  So this was my idea of a sweet and simple gift.

I picked up several notepads, cards, and gift tags a while back, but Target always has cute paper products!

I love chalkboard and craft paper for gifts, and these polka dot gift bags matched perfectly.  They were also the perfect size for a bag of caramels, a cute notepad, and a handwritten note!

 And the thing I am secretly loving about Teacher Appreciation Week?  It means summer break is right around the corner!
