Teacher Appreciation Week

Last week was Teacher Appreciation Week and my school had a theme for it (because we like to go overboard like that): "We're WILD about our teachers!"

Monday we had to wear our zebra prints (and when hardly anyone did because who has zebra prints in their wardrobe, the principal had a good talking to with everyone.)

Tuesday we wore leopard prints. Yes, I had to go out and buy a special shirt for that one!

Wednesday was "bear your feet" day and we all got to wear flip flops (YESSSSS!)

Thursday was "Monkey see- Monkey Do" (twin day)

Friday was "wild mane day" (crazy hair)

I had a bit of fun on Friday, and this is what I looked like.

The kids kept raising their hands to tell me I had pink in my hair!

Anyways, breakfast was provided for us on the first two days and lunch was provided for the next three. The benefits of working in a mostly Hispanic school? When the parents get together to cook for you, it's better than ANYTHING you'll ever eat at a Mexican restaurant!

Teacher Appreciation Week was very yummy, but not so good for my waistline....

I hope all you teachers out there got spoiled, too!!

We received a mint.

Oh, I love your hair! And animal prints do NOT live in my closet, I would have had a hard time with that one.

Flip flops? Oh for sure...

For some odd reason, Teacher Appreciation is next week at our school. I can't wait..we get lunch made for us four days!

Yeah, I received, ummm, air? Oh wait, there were cookies at the staff meeting, so maybe that was for teacher appreciation. We used to get a very fancy lunch from the pto. But then we got a new principal and she ruined lots of things, like that.

I wish we could ban flip flops and only wear them for special things like you did. They are the most dangerous and disgusting shoes. Wait, they tie with Uggs for the most disgusting, but we need to ban them.

WHAT? This must be an Elem Ed thing because I wasn't appreciated last week.... I want a refund!

I'm glad you were spoiled by the parents. Did you get anything from students?

I don't ever remember the teachers getting an entire appreciation week! That's so awesome!

And I love the hair! haha

Wow, they really go all out! I would be annoyed at having to dress up- I'd say if you really appreciate me, don't make me do this. LOL
