Teachers Appreciation Week
To teach is to touch a life forever
Before getting involved in my children's day to day school routine, outside of the home, there was little I knew about the school environment, except for my own memories.
Now that they go to school close to home and I have been given the good responsibility of drop off and pick-up, I find myself in their school quite regularly.
There is always an activity or activities every month to bring parents into the school to be informed of their child's education. These activities are fun but informative, they give parents a chance to get a glimpse into our children's daily school routine.
I have seen the love, care, and long hours all teachers and staff put into ensuring that students receive a well rounded education to prepare them for their future in their communities, higher education, and their for their financial careers. You (teachers) are appreciated more than you know. A good teacher is never forgotten--I still have fond memories of school.
Tokens Of Appriciation
In the monthly meeting with the meet and greet with the Principal, we discussed the plan for Teachers Appreciation week; basically parents would make donations to treat teachers. The date was on the school calendar, flyers were sent home, and we had a meeting--no way I could forget to be involved. Thank you PTO--I am a bit out of the loop about such things. :)
My husband believes you can't go wrong with chocolate. He bought chocolates. I stacked the chocolates with a thank you card; which one child wrote a message in, then wrapped them in ribbon. Ideas for sweet sayings were found on Pinterest. Share your teacher appreciation ideas in the comments. I didn't take any pictures of ours.
Sugar and smarts are really what great teachers are made of

It's Thursday. On Thursdays I share short stories about my old favorites - pieces of jewelry I've made when just starting out. This week I'm sharing 3 pieces - all made with faceted red agate - faceted red agate. I loved the sophisticated feminine appeal of these pieces. They are all sterling silver, except for the pin. I do not focus much on these styles anymore - they can get pricey. Check them out below. What do you think?

On Thursdays I share my old favorites - pieces of jewelry I've made when just starting out. What do you think? My all time favorite - Botswana agate sterling silver wrapped bracelet. When I first saw Botswana agate and touched it - I was on cloud nine - literally (yes, like the saying). On my first encounter I felt like I was in another zone, because of this deep connection Botswana agate naturally became my number one favorite agate gemstone, so I used it in many finished pieces. Do you have a favorite gemstone? Leave your answer in the comment section below.
Photographing natural gemstones is very challenging to say the least; they are like a mirrior and reflect light and everything else around, and the colors can become distorted. The Botswana agate was the hardest to photograph. I've learned that a natural backgound is perfect for gemstone jewelry. I love the way the product photos turned out.
Botswana agate is a stone of tranquility - serenity - surreal calmness. Enhance your casuals - https://hannahsgems.zibbet.com .
