An apple

P1060130webWhat better way to thank teachers (or former teachers, in this case) than to give them an apple?  The month of May is a very stressful time in my school, as I’m sure it is in every school, because of all the exams that the students have to take (and re-take.)  Two women were in charge of scheduling all the exams and class coverage.  The schedules had to be changed daily depending on several factors that I can’t even begin to understand!

Anyhow, I wanted to thank them and let them know how much they were appreciated, so I gave them each an apple.  Of course, I couldn’t bring myself to just give them an apple; it had to be fancied up!  When I saw this freebie from Miss Kate’s Cuttables, I knew I had to use it.  I didn’t have a lot of time to put this together, so I used the image, not the cut file, along with some cute test bubble paper from the DCWV Hittin’ the Books paper pad.

I added a single-serving packet of almond butter to sustain their energy.


People like to be appreciated.  When I notice that someone is dong a great job, or a hard job, I like to recognize them for it!  Even something small like an apple will brighten their day!

    That is such cute idea and I love that test paper!

  2. What you did was a lovely gesture and that coming from a high school teacher of 33 years…and, I don’t think I was ever given an apple. Oops….teacher appreciation day by the PTA…they put a large basket of apples in the teacher’s lounge for us. Hummm….the almond butter sounds wonderful…never heard not tasted it.
