This year I was able to fulfill one of my goals of becoming a mentor teacher to an aspiring teacher. I have to say this was a very rewarding and reflective opportunity for me, especially since I'm only in my 3rd year of teaching and to know that my principal thought that I was a good candidate to offer this wonderful experience to a student teacher from Towson University.
My student teacher was amazing and I definitely learned a lot from her and I hope that she took a lot of positive and helpful things away from her experience with me. Her last day with my 1st graders and I was on March 4th and what better way to show our appreciation for her than to have a celebration of thanks. I wanted to make sure that she had things that she would be able to use when she gets her own classroom so we collected items for a gift basket and I made her a set of 10 Thank You cards to have on hand. I also made a special card and banner to let her know that we would miss her and just how much she meant to us.
I was so happy with how these cards turned out and they were very simple to put together.
Is this not the cutest card?!?
It was missing something so I decided to finally open up my I-rock and put it to use. I was so happy with the end result
The gift basket filled with goodies
My very first banner. I would have liked to have done a little more with it, but I kind of waited to the last minute to get it done. I was very pleased with how simple yet cute it was
Cute tote with all of the kids handprints and signatures
Thanks for stopping by. I love and appreciate all of your comments. Things are beginning to slow down for me so hopefully I will be able to start crafting much more.
Until next time....
