DIY Chalkboard Teacher Appreciation Gift Box

Teacher appreciation Gift Box

I am so thankful for the great teachers in my children’s lives. Their dedication and commitment has played such a big part in building my kids into confident and resilient little people.

My son has had some challenges this year in learning to read, It is not something that has come naturally to him and his teacher has been such an amazing and supportive force in his life.

My mom was a teacher, so I know it is not a 9-3 job. I know most teachers, get in early, take their work home with them and spend a lot of their own money on supplies for their classroom.

I also know, teachers don’t do it for the money! They do it because they care. That’s why an appreciation gift, no matter the size, is so important. Just a little reminder to let them know that you appreciate all that time and effort.

Let’s start by gathering the supplies needed:
