How to be a legit teacher: teacher tip # 4

Today's teacher tip is brought to you by Jayden! Jayden describes himself as active, intelligent, and creative.  He loves sports and enjoys playing football and basketball. He is quite the All-Star Athlete.

Jayden's tip for teachers is this: "Treat students with respect."

 Jayden is on to something with this excellent piece of advice. As teachers we must remember that our students are human, and have hearts. They have a keen sense of authenticity, and can tell when they are not respected by others. I know every teacher out there pushes for students to show respect to you, and to each other, but let's not forget that our students deserve our respect too! Now I know there may be some who feel that respect is "earned and not given", but I respectfully disagree. I admonish you to take Jayden's advice and make sure that you treat each of your students with the highest level of respect possible.

Five for Friday!

Okay, so I'm tardy for the party, but I'm still excited about the week I had!

My sister sent me this picture of my nephews at the library!!! I'm so in love with this picture. I hope this becomes one of their favorite places.

These are our Mother's Day Note Cards. I love the way they turned out. I hope all the moms enjoy their sweet notes! By the way if you're reading this and you're a mom, Happy  Mother's Day! 
It was Teacher Appreciation Week, and boy did my students spoil me. Here are some of my gifts.

I am so blessed to have such sweet students and parents!
One of my favorite parts of this week, was showering other teachers with a little bit of love. Each student got to choose one teacher, other than me, to show appreciation to. They wrote little notes, that I typed for them, and delivered their notes with an apple. This will definitely be an annual event!!

I am beyond excited about my new Cricut Gold Edition, I named her Goldie!!! I may or may  not be an addict. Here is my very first Cricut creation. If you like this shirt hop over to my little shop and order one, or place an order for a customized shirt. Please click Clad in Love to shop!

Don't I look cute in my "less bitter more glitter" shirt!!!

Well that's all for now, and hopefully I'll be on time to the party next week! I hope your Friday was as fabulous as mine, and if it wasn't, look on the bright side, it could have been Monday!!!
