Have you thanked a teacher this week??

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week...did you know that?? For the last 14 years I never knew when it was T.A.W. because no one seemed to appreciate the teachers in the inner city schools.  We didn't have a PTO to plan anything. Our principal didn't even really acknowledge any kind of appreciation for the teachers. So, you can imagine my surprise when I received a big ole cake from a parent yesterday. I also got this...

I didn't eat the cake or the candy bars, but just the thought of receiving any kind of a "thank you" from a parent has warmed my heart!! The PTO also provided us with a fabulous luncheon today. The spread was amazing....fried chicken, barbecue pork, meatballs, several kinds of pasta salad, several kinds of fruit salad,  veggies and dips, cheese and meat trays....and a HUGE cake and punch. Those military moms totally rock!

 Have I told you lately that I love my job???
