I am wondering why all of you poor art teachers are responsible for having
the kids make something for teacher appreciation day? Who has asked you to do
this? What is being done for you? I find it appauling that you have to be
responsible for this! I did one small thing to help parents out with TAW this
year and I so regret it I won't do it again!!!!
Is this like making sure the kids take something home for Mother's Day I
stopped that in my school 4 years ago. My own mother often doesn't even get a
card because I am so busy (Ah ha!! I have her card for this year though!) It
is not fair nor part of my job to see that 450 kids go home with a mother's day
present...same for TAW (Teacher Appreiciation Week). You are a certified
staff member too...what is being done to show appreciation for you?
