📚Teacher Appreciation Week🍎

What an honor to be featured on Kim’s blog for Teacher Appreciation Week! Thank you.

I’ve done a few posts over the years to honor teachers, especially this time of year. As I have such wonderful memories of my own school-age experiences, as well as of the wonderful mentoring I received while getting my undergraduate degree in early childhood education, I didn’t think I could possibly have more admiration for these overworked, underpaid, tireless advocates for children.

My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at both the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital.

      You’re right, Pete. It is wonderful. Today the children surprised us with flowers, yummy food and a very special card. I will post tomorrow, even though I’m not super comfortable with ‘me’ posts. You know what I mean.
