I tell everyone I know so many times that I work at the best school.
This week proved it forever.
I really don’t need presents to feel appreciated – I get to work with an amazing staff of teachers, support staff, and administrators that make my job fun. I get to teach awesome students who are constantly making me laugh and who really care about me. I love my job so much.
But this week, I feel spoiled. I am truly so lucky to work at Mid City. Our non-teacher staff coordinated something for EVERY SINGLE DAY THIS WEEK in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week. I almost cried many times because it was just SO NICE.
Monday: everyone received a Mid City ID/key holder!
Tuesday: They filled the staff lounge with treats – the entire table. Just so many cookies. One of our paras brought everyone a little solar powered dancing flower.
Wednesday: Breakfast was brought in. A student brought all of the teachers in the building cupcakes that said “You Rock”. Service learning students potted and gifted all of the teachers impatiens with a lovely poem attached. They left more flower seeds in our mailboxes. A student in my advisory chose me to write the appreciation notes I asked them to write to.
Thursday: Service Learning students delivered Mid City water bottles to each of us with a note – two students wrestled in my doorway to get to be the one to give me mine. They brought in enchiladas for lunch.
Friday: A student baked every teacher cookies. We got Mid City tote bags with pop inside and a cute note.
I feel overwhelmed with all the appreciation. My coworkers are the BEST. I love the culture of our school. It’s been a good week.
