Finally!! A day for ME! (Other than my birthday. Okay, okay… finally ANOTHER day for me…) The kids (and their mommies) were so generous again today. All the teachers were very spoiled. I won’t go into what the gifts were (I may need to re-gift some of them – ha ha) but I would like to share what the little monsters wrote in the cards. Some days, folks… some days I almost like the little bastards.
"Dear Jodi teacher! This is a little token of appreciation for taking care of Esther. I invested a quite of bit of time effort for this beads set. ^_^ I hope you like it. Thank you very much. <from Esther mom>" (Kindergarten mommy who MADE my gift.)
"Happy teacher’s day. I love Jodi teacher. John" (Kindergarten)
"to Jodi teacher. I love you! I hope you like it. From Jenny Y" (Kindergarten)
"Jodi Teacher I love you. Love Rena" (Kindergarten)
"To Jodi T.= Theacher I’m Daniel. I’m happy because I’m in your class. Thank you for your teaching. You are a good teacher. I will remember you. From = Daniel" (4:00 class)
"Hello Jodi teacher. Do you know what day is today? It’s teacher’s day. Did you know on teacher’s day? Oh! I know on teacher’s day I thank to my teacher’s because teacher’s teach me many times." (2:30 class)
"To Jodi teacher. Thank you for your excellent teaching. Thank you very much. Have nice day! from William" (4:00 class)
"Hi! Jodi. Today is teacher’s day. I prepared small present. I saw you often put your hairpin. I really hope to you like it. I always think you are the best teacher. Jason really love you. me too. Have a happy day! Have a exciting day! from Jason’s mom" (Kindergarten mommy)
Some of them choke me up a little (like from Jason’s mommy!) and some of them just make me laugh… these little bastards aren’t learning anything (like "theacher" from Daniel… nice work, dillhole). The kids were really excited to give their gifts, and it reallly was nice of the parents.
Orla, Brooke, "The Black Belt Guy", and I (although it was Orla’s idea) gave our Master a bottle of whiskey for Teacher’s Day. We figured he probably could handle knocking back a few after dealing with us every night.
