Kathy asked how the teachers who did not get choosen for the "Dinner Party" project that my kids did recently. Since no teacher could be honored by more than one person, we basically covered the 7th and 8th grade teachers, the administrators, a social worker, and a bus driver. Everyone else was still invited to share in the food and drinks. They seemed to be as supportive as the others. I think they recognize that it's hard to honor everyone and it was more authentic this way. No one honored a teacher who they didn't have as a teacher or club advisor or something. Teachers and parents have both suggested doing this as a yearly celebration to go along with Teacher Appreciation Week (which I didn't know was the same week we had planned this).
