Teacher Appreciation Card




It is true confession time! I really, really, really wanted to become a teacher when I was a youngster. When I entered college I decided to pursue a "practical" vocation. The desire never left and 16 years after graduating the first time I went back. I became an honest to goodness teacher! What a time to graduate with the economy tanking... LOL... So even though I can't find a job, I will continue to look. It was both exhilarating and exhausting. I created this card as a special thank you for my mentor. I want her to know that each time I enter a classroom I will think of her and what she taught me. Enjoy!

These are so simple and yet really modern looking. Do you use something special to write inside on the black paper or do you glue white paper inside?

Thanks for sharing. Love this!
