Welcome to day four of our week of teacher appreciation! Have you had your imagination sparked yet? I loved Kelly's idea of documenting favorite college professors. While I have no photos, I am thinking that google would help me be able to find a few! And Amy's water bottles filled with candies were brilliant!
I must admit that I felt a pang of guilt as I read that the first day of school wasn't the best day for photos. Then I remembered that our photos were taken on the "meet your teacher" days that our schools host the week before school starts; and I breathed a huge sigh of relief! I try so hard to not be overwhelming with my camera in the classroom. I have even considered leaving my big camera at home and just taking my little one, but then I remember that when I do, I am inevitably disappointed with the quality, so I just pull up my big girl panties and do my best to not feel awkward.
LAYOUT IDEA: JUST THE FACTS, MA'AM
I have a list in my head of all the teachers that I had throughout elementary, junior high, and high school. But the other day I asked my 14 year old if he could remember his second grade teacher and he could not. Ah!!! Appalling!
I am teasing. But I must admit I was a bit surprised. Seems like you might want to be able to look up your teachers' names quickly, no? So our layout idea for today is to create a layout that lists your teachers. You could add a snippet of info for each one, if you would like, or not. No rules.
Here is mine.
And I thought I may as well use a similar format for my kids. Here is Nigel's (redacted) page in progress.
This also makes me think I would like to put together a page that puts all my schools down on one page. I don't have photos of mine handy, but will dig some up the next time I go home to my parents'. Because even though I like to pretend things won't change. They do. My elementary school is now an alternative school for people who cannot attend regular school. My junior high was torn down and rebuilt a few years ago. My high school has new wings and additions that make it much less the school than that which exists in my mind. Knowing this, I figured I may as well make the same sort of layouts for my kids. Because chances are good that their schools won't remain the same either.
Amy made a page for her elementary school teachers. Isn't she a lovely little bitty?
I hope you might consider making a page such as these. It shouldn't take too long. Unless your mom is chatty, of course!!
TEACHER APPRECIATION GIFT IDEA: Chocolate
I have yet to meet someone who doesn't appreciate a little chocolate. So I put together a little wrapper for a hershey bar. I made it for the big one. Hopefully you will be able to find that size where you are!
I added a copy for you in our printables if you would like to download one. You should be able to print it, trim it, wrap and adhere. Ca c'est tout!
Thank you, always, for stopping by! I hope you have an awesome day!
