You live you learn, you love you learn,
you cry you learn, you lose you learn

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week at school. Seems like everyone else had theirs 3 weeks ago so I don't know why we're so behind, but oh well.

They suggest you: 'say something nice' to your teacher, 'bring her fruit', etc. Er. Fruit? Sorry. I'm the worst offender of calorie crushers around here and I show love with dessert. I did try to incorporate fruit the best way I know how though...

For the after school care teachers: Banana cupcakes with a Cinnamon Buttercream

I am making little gifts for the kids *actual* class teachers, but I felt like I wanted to do something for ALL the teachers in the school. After all my kids will be there through 5th grade, I might as well butter them up I MEAN get on their good side now.

So I made Teacakes with a Brown Sugar Whipped Cream and Chocolate cupcakes with Mascarpone Frosting and left the box in the teacher's lounge. I hope they enjoyed them. I can barely handle 2 kids I don't know how the teacher's cope with 25+ all day. I think they deserve all the cupcakes in the world.

I love being a teacher. I love the kids. I love watching them discover new things. I love their energy. I also love parents who help their children and their teachers. And I especially love parents who buck the "bring teachers fruit" guideline for teacher appreciation week b/c nothing says appreciation like those awesome looking cupcakes!!!!

As a teacher, I can confidently say that I'm sure all of your gifts were MUCH appreciated! It means so much to get a token of appreciation from a student and/or parent, no matter what it is.
