Remember To Thank The Teachers

“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops." Henry Adams 

How do YOU thank the teachers who have taught your kids throughout the long school year?

I only have one child who is school age.  I know when he is home from school the dynamics in our household change.  There is more noise, more fighting, more everything.  Being a teacher is a job I surely wouldn't want to have.  I know that as a mother, I AM a teacher, but the thought of having 20+ kids in one room really sends me over the edge of insanity.  Being a teacher is an extremely hard job.  Teachers mold our children and prepare them for the future as productive adults.  

So, let me ask you again..."How do you thank your child's teacher?"  Do you give them soap, a candle, a "World's Greatest Teacher" mug.  My mom was a teacher and I know for a fact that she neither smelled nor needed any more teacher mugs.  I think teachers deserve more than these items.  They deserve something that they can cherish and remember why they do what they do day in and day out.

Here are some suggestions of items that I can create to send the right message.  Teachers are appreciated for their hard work!

 This lovely beaded pen can be done in a variety of colors and price points.  This is really useful and special for the teacher in your lives.

This bracelet is created using glass rounds with a focal bead made with ceramic.  This is something a teacher can wear again and again.

What about a simple pair of earrings?  These brass earring are elegant and very pretty to wear everyday.

I am also working on some hand stamped sterling silver necklaces that have phrases such as "Teach~Dream~Inspire" on them.  

Contact me today and we can discuss your options.  I can create something special within your budget.
