I just finished up two cards for my son’s 4th grade teachers. They are both delightful and remarkable people. His lead teacher, Mandy, is wonderfully grounded and patient. Yelena, the intern teacher, has amazing energy and has done some really interesting projects this year which have included taking the kids rock climbing and learning about fair trade chocolate. When we were in San Francisco’s amazing chocolate shop, Cocobella, my son asked if the chocolate was fair trade. The “kids” running the shop had no idea and asked my son what fair trade was. He gave them an amazingly detailed answer. Thank you Yelena!
So for all the amazing teachers out there I wish I could make a card for each of you. Your energy, love and enthusiasm is greatly needed by today’s children. I thank you open heartedly for all you do.
The kids will all sign these cards with little stories or favorite things from the year.
Here’s a little detail of one of the wonderful bugs from the artist’s paper I used to collage the front of the cards.
School’s almost out and I, for one, am ready to ditch the homework and run free!
