I loved teaching at Metairie Park Country Day School.
Especially in November.
By November, my students had finished reading the first novel of the year. They’d written their first five-paragraph essays and finished their first creative projects, (which were always amazing). By then, they had a pretty good understanding of my expectations, and I knew enough about their individual personalities to feel a wonderful kind of connectedness in the classroom.
CONFESSION: The other reason I loved November in New Orleans is a little more selfish.
Starting around Thanksgiving, MPCDS parents and students started leaving gifts for me on my desk.
Pies and brownies, cookies and baked hams. Gifts cards. Once, I even received a handmade sweater!
These shows of appreciation really mattered to me, especially since my salary was a little light on the green back in the day.
My fave gifts were always the ones that paired a little yummy somethin’ along with somethin’ that came from the heart.
When I became a parent myself, I remembered the generosity of my students and their parents. And while I was committed to giving my son’s teachers great gifts, I often found myself scrambling to get something at the last minute… and not loving the gifts that I gave.
I have the perfect solution.
The teacher gift bundle.
Let me hook you up with SEVEN of my most popular 6×6 reproductions… paired with fabulous high quality chocolates, all carefully packaged. (I’ll even include handwritten notes, if you tell me what you’d like me to write!)
And did I mention FREE SHIPPING?
All for $120.
