I think there are many times in our professional career when we feel deflated and not appreciated.  There are also many times in our career when we feel that we've made the difference in a child's life and that's all that matters.  Teachers are the rock to so many children, and I think we have to go to school remembering that we MAKE A DIFFERENCE!  There will be days when we don't want to go, there will be days when we want to scream, there will be days when we want to throw in the towel, but there will also be days when we know that we wouldn't do any other job in the whole wide world!  
Today, we want to thank you for being a TEACHER!  You ARE appreciated by US!!  We are doing a giveaway to say 
THANK YOU for being YOU! 
Here are some ideas if you win! ;) 

IRIS Photo and Craft Storage Organizer with 16 Small Photo Cases, Set of 2Here are a few of my favorite items - on Amazon, I would purchase this SWEEEEET container.  I know it says for photos, but I put my center games that I've created in here.  It holds 16 games, and it is SUPER sturdy!!!  I absolutely love them!  I bought my first one at Michaels for $39.99, but Amazon has them 2 for $49.52 with free shipping.  Click on this link to check them out.

I've been purchasing these white book shelves a little bit at a time for years from Target.  Seven years ago, a sweet mom gave me a $100 gift card to Target, and that's when the obsession began.  I now have nine of them, and they have traveled with me to three different classrooms (and getting ready to be a fourth classroom).  I haven't had to replace one yet!  They are sturdy and perfect for books and centers.  They are a little costly, but Target does run them on sale frequently.  I honestly could not be as organized without these storage units.

Enough about me - click on the picture below to enter the giveaway!!  GOOD LUCK TO YOU!!
