Teacher Appreciation Week
I have been teaching for 11 years. Wow, right? Yeah, 11 years. Where has the time gone? :)
A lot of people think that teaching is what you do when you can't do anything else. I have trouble with this idea, and truly know that these people who think this must have never taught ANYTHING in their entire lives. Teaching is extremely challenging, and yet so very rewarding. It is a craft that has to be honed daily. This craft constantly has to be molded to fit the personalities and levels of development of our students. It is something one has to feel a call for, and I am proud to say that I do feel that call.
Happy Teacher Appreciation Week to all teachers everywhere, and especially to all my Clifton Hills girls and gals that share a special place in my heart.

To celebrate this week, I thought my 5th grade team deserved some sweet treats. I whipped these up, thanks to Eighteen25 and they were a hit. :)
