Having worked full-time in the classroom this year I've had an in-depth view of what it's like to take care of our kids and teach them all they need to know.
Our kid's can be very sweet but very noisy! I think it's the noise that gets to me. By Friday, we are both ready for the weekend. We've had sooo much fun learning, reading, singing, and creating!!! All in all, I have to say we've had a great year. A memorable year. I will miss the kids but, will look forward to a new group of kids next year. I might even be able to follow them on to 3rd grade. I won't know my new assignment until school starts in August.
I'm sure you each know that Teacher's really deserve all the thanks and gratitude we can give them for a job well done!!! I can think of many teacher's I've had that have touched my life and given me a wonderful education. My 8th Grade Home Economics teacher actually lives in my neighborhood and I first learned to sew in her class. I will be forever grateful for what she gave me. I remember when we first moved here and I recognized her. It was great to be able to say THANK YOU. What's fun is our son's have been best friends for many years now.
What are you making this year for your kid's teachers? Here's what I'm doing. . .
I had fun personalizing the bag with the teacher's name and then I signed it too.
This is the first bag I'm making for the teacher I work with and I have a second one to make for my daughter's teacher. It makes a great bag to carry their books, computers, lunches or just about anything you could think of.
The pattern is from Sandi Henderson of Portabellopixie.The great fabric is from Lila Tueller's newest line of fabric called Soiree. You can get it HERE.
