Most kiddos are back in school by now. If you’re like me, you’re wondering where summer went. The teachers are too! Over the years, I’ve held a few different jobs; one of them being a preschool teacher. As much as you might love your own children, spending an entire day with a room of them can be overwhelming and exhausting. Thankfully we’ve had teachers every year that have been beyond amazing and love my kids like they’re their own children. It’s easy to forget to thank a teacher for the sacrifices they (and their families) make from spending nights grading papers or writing lesson plans to skipping family vacation to buy school supplies or books for their classroom. A simple way you can thank them is to send dinner to school for them. I sent in dinner the first Friday of school for the boy’s teachers. Corbin’s teacher was a bit easier – she didn’t really have allergies to deal with and she was his first grade teacher so we had an idea of likes and dislikes. Cater’s teacher is new to the school and I remembered from her bio at the school picnic that she was gluten free. That’s one allergy we don’t have to worry about in this house so it was a learning experience to find some gluten free things to send in. I didn’t make her meal since I was honestly afraid to cook it and mess it up but I did send it all in for her and all she had to do was boil the pasta for the spaghetti. Both teachers were so very appreciative of the unexpected goodies and appreciated not having to cook for one night.
