In Celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week
So you may have heard that this week is Teacher Appreciation Week. Designated in 1953 by the National Parent Teacher Asssociation with the first Tuesday set aside for Teacher Day, this week is all about recognizing and appreciating the hard work that goes into educating our children every day. Little mama is only three months old, so we're a ways away from personally recognizing teachers (if you're looking for ways to show your appreciation, check HERE or HERE) but I wanted to take the time to remember my favorite teacher, Ms. Cowles.
We were assigned an especially memorable project that year; we had to create a scrapbook with pictures and stories detailing our lives up to that point. I think everyone else was crying about how much work it would be, but my Mom and I had so much fun with that project! We gathered tons of pictures and she regaled me with hilarious stories about me and my siblings that she thought might be fun to put in the book. I think that was most enjoyable homework assignment I've had. And later, during my Senior year when my AP English teacher assigned a similar project for our class, I was already prepared and knew what to expect!
