It’s Teacher Appreciation Week. Let’s get a great big WHOOP WHOOP for all the hard working teachers out there!
When I was a kid I thought teaching would be the most glorious job in the world.You work 9 months and got the entire summer off. What more could you ask for?
Then I learned these things:
Teachers arrive at school before the kids arrive & leave after they have gone home.
Teachers do home work too.
Teachers have to deal with large numbers of kids & their parents daily & not they are not always well behaved, parents included.
Turns out teaching is not the glamorous gig I once thought it was.
I was asked to make some “teaching” cupcakes for the teachers at the Girdwood School.
My mom randomly sent me some school themed cupcake liners a couple of months ago. I think she might be psychic. Love her!
I made some cute gold star, A+, chalk board & apple gum paste toppers
Then I did this
and I saved the best for last
Isn’t that apple the cutest thing? They were Plan B for an idea that didn’t work out as planned.
I loved making these cupcakes for the Girdwood School teachers & I hope they enjoy them.
Here’s one more shout out to all the teachers who work so hard to educate today’s kids!
