Monogram Apple Canvas for Teacher Appreciation Week

It’s Teacher Appreciation Week if you didn’t realize. And I think this is the perfect time to truly show your teacher how much they mean to you. You can easily check out something like these gift ideas for college professors if you are planning on getting them something, or you could create something for them (obviously depending on what they would prefer).

I posted a photo to Instagram of a monogram apple canvas that Gabe and I made for Teacher Appreciation Week, and I received some messages and emails asking how I created it. I decided to make a quick tutorial for those of you that are interested in making one for a teacher, or maybe for your own classroom. I was very pleased with how it turned out, and Gabe’s teacher now has it hanging in her classroom. It was an inexpensive way to show our appreciation for her hard work wrangling preschoolers this year.

Remembering Mrs. Cole: American Education Week

December 4, 2014

American Education Week inspired me to reflect upon my experiences with educators,  and share a story about the lasting impact of an educator on a community and myself. Last year, while working as a news reporter, I covered a fundraiser for an elementary school in my hometown; it was just before the May primary election. A gentleman who was running for County Judge Executive was given a brief moment to speak. He talked about growing up in the area, attending the school many years ago, and he specifically named the teachers that had a profound influence on his life. One of the teachers the gentleman named was Rose Garland Cole. She had taught for over 40 years in the county, and had been retired from teaching for 20 years when she died in 2011.

Thirteen years after her death, and decades after he had been in her classroom, this man still recalled the impact she had on him. American Education Week was established to honor educators including teachers and support staff, and celebrate public education. Today, I’m honoring the staff at Shwab Elementary, the amazing educators involved in my life, and a teacher named Mrs. Cole.
