Captain Computer has always been welcomed since before his sister started school. When I worked as a technology consultant for the school system, I’d stop by to work with the staff when I was pregnant with him. After he was born, I took some time off to stay home and resurfaced again when Little Miss Techie started kindergarten.
Now that both of our children are in elementary school, I have a little bit more time during the day. Rather than rushing to preschool pickup, I have a couple of extra hours to work, volunteer in the kids’ classrooms, and show the staff my appreciation.
When our daughter started kindergarten I sent in little tokens of thanks. Chocolate bars, peppermint foot cream to help tired feet after a long day, and hand written notes. I like to think those handwritten notes were bright spots in her teacher’s day just like they were for me when I was teaching.
During my first year teaching I had a butterfly folder that was a gift from an experienced parent who happened to be a teacher too. She said it was the perfect place to stash positive reminders that I could look back on during the most difficult days of my career. I stuffed mine full of notes from kids, parents, colleagues, and my principal and referred to it often.
