Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up soon. This is the time of year to thank teachers for all of the hard work they do.
So often they purchase their own supplies and spend their free time helping kids learn and grow. As a former classroom teacher myself, I truly admire today’s teachers and educators for all they do!
We’ve took to pulling together some fun and unique ideas for you to make yourself to thank that special teacher in your life! Even if you don’t want to make them something (or have no money to spend), a simple thank you card is all that you need to do!!
