Teacher Appreciation Week

I think it's an understatement to say that the end of the year is VERY exhausting. Maybe it's just me, but I feel READY for summer NOW. I'm beat. The kids are beat. Everyone needs a break.
Only 16 more days to go...............

For those of you who wish to become a teacher, please know what you are getting into! It's HARD work and VERY little pay.

For those of you who are teachers, thank god for we do day in and day out with our youth of America.



  1. I have such an admiration for teachers!

  2. Happy Teacher Appreciation!!! I very much respect what you do for the kids!!! {it takes a special kind of person} <333

  3. I totally agree with you. I'm in my second year of teaching, and I feel like I am always running on empty and trying to catch up especially at the end of the year. I am also super excited for summer, but it's tough to think about because I feel like I still have so much to teach!
    Happy teacher appreciation week!

  4. Awww, Happy Teacher Appreciation Day! I honestly don't know how y'all do it! My SIL and a handful of my friends are teachers. You guys def. deserve more pay, and more praise! Keep doing what you're doing, and know you are appreciated sweet girl!

    And I wanted to thank you for your super sweet comment the other day. It made me smile, and I loved it! It made me feel so much better. You said you have high chloesterol too? I have high C and the medicine makes me feel weird so I stopped taking it. I guess I will just e-mail you later about it. LOL.

    Have a great day!

  5. You're right...hard work for little pay!

    We had a nice breakfast this morning and a free dress down day :)

  6. I agree with your end of the year statement, only we have 32 days left! AHhhhh end of the year is CRAZY for teachers and the kids going nutso just makes it worse!

  7. I can't believe it's almost the end of the year! I am in my first year of teaching and it is exciting/terrifying. I'm with you on needing a break!

    Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

  8. Happy TAW from one teacher to another.
    I'm with you on hoping that summer comes soon!

  9. Teaching is hard, I couldn't imagine doing it. My Dad is a principal and my best friend a second grade teacher, kudos to you all.

    I'll stick to nursing. ;)

  10. i work at a school to get through school (im doing nursing) and amen to this.
    teachers do so so much & the kids just keep getting more and more disrespectful and unappreciative by the day.
    ahhh. i have so much respect for you!
    teachers really deserved to be PRAISED.
    you can make it to summer!!

    ps. we definitely go through a TON of fruits & veggies too :)
    but 10 lbs of strawberries in a week would probably turn us pink!
    which would be an improvement as to how WHITE i am. haha

  11. How lovely! I'm a teacher in Australia and we have AGES until our summer holidays- not until December- arghhh! Already feeling the stress. Keep counting down those days XXX
