Giving thanks ||Teachers||

I think Bing Crosby sang it best,  

“An apple for the teacher will always do the trick when you don’t know your lesson in arithmetic”
Apples have long been a standing tradition in teacher gifts. Today, I put a little Bakehouse touch to the concept and sent my kiddos along to school (late, none the less...good thing they had a yummy treat). Apple pie bars with a little jar of salted caramel to drizzle on top, all wrapped up with a lace bow. 
Simple. Cute. Delish.

We have been blessed to have (and have had) incredible teachers for our kiddos. Each year, I am amazed at the tireless work they do; the behind the scenes preparation and the devotion they have to their jobs. They are selfless, giving, kind, and I am often left sad at how little they are compensated for their efforts. 

Teachers are with my kiddos as much during the day as I am, five days a week. This makes them very important people in my book. They are often there not only to teach educationally, but to teach character, social skills, a love for learning. They are there to wipe a tear, band aid a wound, and quiet fears when I am not. I am grateful for the work they do and wish I could do more to show my appreciation.

  Whether it's an apple or an apple pie bar, or just a note of sincere thanks; remember the important people in your children's lives. Being deliberate in my children's school lives and creating relationships with the people who are next to me in the amount of work and love they give to my children has never failed me. In fact, it has enhanced my relationship with my kiddos in ways that nothing else could.
