Greatest Week EVER and Some Encouragement!

Okay ya’ll, I really do LOVE this week at work! I walk into the teachers’ lounge and find sonic ice and cokes, or Jason’s Deli lunch, or grilled burger by our admin, or snacks, or breakfast, or whatever! While I don’t enjoy the extra miles I need to run after the bad eating, I DO enjoy all of the appreciation that is showered on us by the PTA.

I recently read this blog post by Jen Hatmaker about being thankful for teachers.  I LOVE her! I also loved this post.  It was just encouraging and just what I needed to read.  I highly encourage you to go take a few minutes to read it and just know how much our job truly is appreciated.  We all know there are days, emails, notes, and even looks that make us want to sit down and give up sometimes!!
To help celebrate this week I am joining many others with an extra 20% off sale this week in my TpT store!
Thanks to sweet Beth for the precious graphic!
Get busy filling up your cart! My wish list is packed with more than my hubs wants me to spend, I’m sure! I will be back later this week to share what I have purchased!
Also, Mrs. Sykes is hosting fabulous giveaways all week on her blog! Hop on over and enter for a chance to win my Science Flip Books Part 5!

Enjoy the week, friends!!
