A couple of months ago I attended the parent association meeting at Mac's school. I knew ahead of time that one of the items up for discussion was teacher appreciation week. As we got to that part of the meeting wouldn't you know my hand shot up when they asked who would like to take charge of it.
I've said before I love teachers gifts a little too much, so I just couldn't resist the idea of a whole week of them. I excitedly planned the whole week on a post-it note as I drove away from the school.
I told myself that I would work on everything in April so that I would be well prepared by May 7th. Especially because it might not be the best idea to take this on when lecturing on gender the following week and graduating a couple weeks later.
