Good morning! Well, it’s the last day with the kids at work and no doubt I will get teary eyed handing out report cards at 12:00 today. We have a lot of staff changes coming up next year so I had several cards to hand out personally to so many wonderful colleagues. Most of these have been on the blog, but the first one is new. We have a very funny, classy and genuinely sweet lady retiring after teaching for 36 years. I think she’ll appreciate the “school” paper on her card. Inside I stamped “Enjoy Life,” then added “without bells!” Our lives as teachers are definitely run on bells, kind of like firemen! LOL Next up is that card I made for an inspiring colleague…she really is making me want to start my Masters soon.
Next up is for our principal…I added “already” inside. She is a true educator, not just the administrator. She’s taken a new position at an inner city school so she can challenge herself before she retires. How can you not admire that? Love her and will miss her support and humour :)
Next card is for our librarian…she was also our district’s half time technology coordinator. Her district position is now full time so I think she’ll enjoy the techie ms a la mode girl :)
This next card was waiting on our secretary’s desk with a little box of Purdy’s chocolates.
Next up is the card for our Music teacher. She’s challenging herself by going into a 1/2 classroom so she can gain experience at the Primary level before going into administration! What an inspiration!
This next card went straight to our Learning Assistance teacher. She is nothing but fabulous and amazing and works so hard for the kids. She’s the REAL DEAL. She just got a district reading resource position working with inner city kids to improve their literacy results. She asked me last week if I would be a reference for her. It was so easy to list all her wonderful qualities when I was phoned about her. She has some very big shoes to fill.
And last, but definitely not least is the card for my Grade 2 teaching buddy. Without her humour, insight and resources, it would have been a very long year. She is so sweet and so giving :) And she promised me she’s staying for awhile! I made her double dog dare promise ;)
So that’s the line up! I really do love making teacher cards. October Afternoon paper and the My Favourite Things a la modes make it easy and fun! Thanks for visiting and have a lovely day! I’m not listing supplies as I did in the original posts so if you have any questions, shoot me an email :) Cheers!
