Teacher Appreciations Week Sale and Giveaway!

I really do appreciate teachers!   I used to teach myself (briefly) and I know from experience what a difficult job it is!  It's like being an administrative assistant, clerk, decorator, speach writer, instructor, tutor, student, editor, life coach and babysitter all at once!  That phrase "those who can't do, teach" needs to be changed to, "those who teach can do just about anything."

At my zazzle shop there's a big sale to celebrate teacher week!  You don't have to be a teacher to take advantage!  And I'm doing a little giveaway too! Scroll down to the bottom of this post to enter to win an apple button or magnet customized with your choice of text (or another uncustomized button)!

  2. I am in the PTO and I have set up a monthly "brunch" to say thank you. We usealy go with a theam that goes along with the month. And just today for teacher week we set up a big room and gave them all a spa day. There was a lot of ladies that are well known in the Schoo on hand to give massages, manicures, hand massages, Loy's of Chcolate and fruit on hand and cool fun drinks (no achole) We where there from 8-3 and they came in on breaks, lunch and Sebastian subs come in and give 15 minute breaks so all teachers got a chance for some me time.
    Thank you for this chance to win, Heather Weisenfels

  3. My son made homemade cappuccino mixes with chocolate spoons one year! The teachers loved it and a couple even asked for the recipe.

  4. :) When I was in high school my dog had puppies, my Spanish teacher just had a dog pass away. So I talked to his son (who was in my grade) and we ended up giving him a puppy.... but my teacher claimed the puppy needed a fried so he took 2 :)
    I guess this counts for showing appreciation :) I even puppy sat for him once :)

  5. Let them know a day ahead of time, and make a special lunch for them.

  6. I am a teacher, and the best way a parent showed that they appreciated me was went then sent me a card on mothers day. It pretty much said "thank you for all that you do, you are a 2nd mother to my child" It made me burst into tears instantly as my entire class stared at me, haha :)

  7. Candy bar bouquet instead of flowers

  8. As a teacher, we just want to hear thank you.


  9. a beach bag with beach towel and sunblock and good book for summer break

  10. A nice note to a teacher is appreciated

  11. a way to show a teacher your appreciation is to handmake a card for your teacher!

  12. Gift cards! As a teacher, they were almost my most-appreciated gift :)

  13. A gift card to a nice restaurant is what my sister who is a teacher likes!

  14. Show your appreciation to a teacher by being willing to help out in the classroom or on special field trips

  15. we got the teachers a starbucks gc

  16. Show your appreciation by asking what supplies are needed for the classroom and collect them so the teacher does not have to buy them out of her own money. Some ideas would be extra pens, pencils, craft/art supplies, etc. They could be items that you and your neighbors have around your house. Also ask what you can do to help him/her out and then follow through. Thank you for the giveaway.

  17. I always send my teachers a card after the term is over. Oh, and I leave a rating for them on to help get them more students!

  18. I would write a nice note to the teacher and give him/her a cute flower.
