It’s the middle of summer for many kids but for us, it’s back to school time! We’re on a year-round school schedule which means I’ve got all things backpacks, lunches, and school supplies on my mind!
It also means I’ve got his teachers (new and old) on my mind.
Crayola Thank a Teacher
As a former teacher, I can remember the excitement of the start of a new school year. It’s like opening a brand new notebook and getting out a brand new pen. Everything is fresh and new. It’s a fresh start for everyone.
There is so much potential.
There are also so many brand new school supplies! It’s just an exciting time.
At the beginning of the school year, we always put together a little gift for Weston’s new teacher. It’s just a little something I like to do to let her know that we’re thinking about her and appreciate all she has done already! Our teacher survival kit list is a great resource to help you put together a practical gift!
Sometimes it’s a mug with a little gift card. Other times it’s a few fun supplies that are specifically for her. A few weeks into school, I’ll also snag some extra classroom supplies when they’re on sale and send them in.
I know what’s it like to be a teacher. It’s extremely rewarding but it’s also a lot of work. Anything I can do to support the people spending their days educating my children is something I want to do!
