.. been absent. And yeah.. I'm sure I sinned a time or two. But that's not what this post is about - if you want those juicy details... you'll have to call me.
Anyway - I am working on a teacher gift for this Friday. This is for a teacher that has taught both my boys and we love her. I don't think I could explain to you how much we love her. Besides the fact that she's an awesome teacher.. she's special to me for another reason. I'll quickly tell you why.
My oldest son has an August birthday - he made the "age cutoff" for Kindergarten by 3 days. And me, as a
We weren't lucky enough to have this awesome teacher - we were at a different school and had a BAD TEACHER!!! I thought things were going along just fine.. I walked into my VERY FIRST Parent/Teacher Conference.. eager to hear how bright and sweet and funny MY CHILD was!! Instead the teacher kept saying over and over how small he was.. and he's just so immature.. and she even had the guts to show disgust for his table manners!!!! (She was a mother to a 2 year old little girl).
I walked out of there in TEARS.. cried all the way home!!!!! That was a teacher who shouldn't be in the classroom!!!
Needless to say - we happened to move and he started 1st grade at our current school - and Mrs Curtis was his 1st Grade teacher. She fell in love with him - she says that both our boys remind her of her own son.
SO - with all that said (not so quickly).. My youngest now has her for Kindergarten and he loves her too. Since this is the last child of ours that she will teach - I went a little overboard on her end of year teacher gift.
I got this idea for a quilt from "Carly of Quiltville". I had all the kids in my son's class (and Mrs Curtis) do a self portrait on fabric.
Here is the quilt top - I'm going to finish this week and I will show you more pictures when it's done.
Have you ever had a 'bad' teacher - who probably shouldn't be in the classroom? Or a super awesome teacher that you wish your child could have year after year? Pin It
