Thank you Ms. McMahon

Our public schools have a no gift policy for teachers. We can give a class gift. One big gift that everyone pitches in for, but individual families can not give teacher a gift.

I get it, but it kinda makes me mad.

My son’s Kindergarten teacher is awesome. Really. He has grown by leaps and bounds in the past four months. I am so impressed with her and the curriculum. I couldn’t be happier. Also, my guy was having some problems with the transition. Let’s just say he had a hard time keeping his enthusiasm in check ;-)  Ms. McMahon and I worked hard to figure out ways to reign him in. N worked really hard too and he’s doing so well.

So now it’s the Holidays and I want to do something special for her. I emailed our room parent and she told me there was no class gift in the works, so that meant we had to make something. I thought that maybe it would be nice to bring in lunch for the three Kindy teachers one day. I got a recipe for an awesome tortellini sausage soup. Nope that won’t work. I knew it, she’s a vegetarian. Vegetable soup is not something I’ve ever been able to make well. Cookies? How many cookies can one teacher eat?

As I was wondering, the kids and I were also talking about ideas for our annual Holiday Video Card. Nate said why don’t we make a video for Ms. McMahon? Of course, N. Of course!

He is so smart and sweet and funny. He helped with all the ideas, learned his lines, and away we went. He had so much fun. The part with the words he knows – he picked those first two (which I thought were very appropriate for him -Restless and Responsible ;-) and then he was searching for another one, as if to impress her. It was adorable.

Enjoy! She did :-)))
