Hi Dolls! This week I am celebrating “Teacher Appreciation” and for the first time I am taking full advantage of all of the perks that are being offered to teachers in appreciation of our dedication to education! I think it’s pretty safe to say that I can now call myself a “Veteran teacher” as I have been teaching well over 10 years! Whew! To be honest, I never imagined I would ever get to that point! I hadn’t planned on being a teacher when I first went off to college but now that it’s my reality, I’ve embraced it and can honestly say that I enjoy what I do!
Teacher Appreciation Day was yesterday and I posted via Instagram, several places including Chipotle and Chick Fil-A, who honored teachers on their special day but there are a few establishments who will be recognizing teachers the entire week. I’ve listed some of my favorites below. For all of my fellow teachers reading this, definitely check them out in your area and allow yourself to be “appreciated”! Teaching is not for the faint at heart and you deserve it! Don’t forget your teacher ID’s! If you aren’t a teacher, please share with your teacher friends and families!
