I thought I had posted this project awhile go, but I can't find it anywhere. I guess that means I didn't. I have a friend, who I used to work with. We were both Para Educators (teacher's aides but more than that) with a group of wonderful women. We all became very close.
My friend decided to become a teacher herself. She went to school to get her degree while still working as a Para. Well, this year, she got her first teaching job at the very same school where we all were once Paras! I'm so proud of her. I always loved watching her teach her little groups. She was so good and I'm sure her new students love her.
This lady is a very no-nonsense person. I mean she does super fun things with her students but she doesn't go for the frilly, fru-fru decorating that some teachers do. So, I decided to make her something to hang in her classroom. To add some homey-ness and to commemorate her first year as a full-fledged teacher. But something that wasn't too over-the-top.
Here's what I came up with:
Simple but cute, I think. I cut the apple with my Silhouette using the Hall Pass papers from We R Memory Keepers. I also used my Silhouette and one of the sketch pens to "write" her name. It was the first time I had used my sketch pens. I picked a font that was a little "sketchy" to make it look more realistic. It turned out exactly how I pictured it in my head. I love when that happens!
Now I need to go visit her classroom. I sure wish I could make myself tiny or invisible so I could sneak in and watch her at work. ;)
Thanks for joining me at the Table today!
