If You Give a Teacher a Muffin

If you give a teacher a muffin cardShe'll want coffee to go with it.


Jacob took this card to school for Teacher Appreciation Day.  We taped a Starbucks gift card inside and attached it to a muffin from the local bakery.

I got the idea from a friend who is the president of her PTO and arranged for muffins and coffee for the teachers one morning this week. Her theme was the book, If You Give a Moose a Muffin. I decided to do something on a much smaller scale for Jacob’s first-grade teacher. Hence, the card.

Anybody who has or knows a first grader will probably recognize the popular “If You Give” series: If You Give a Cat a Cupcake, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, If You Give a Moose a Muffin, etc. We have a couple that Chick-fil-A gave out with their kid meals a few years ago.

Anyway, we’ve been blessed with great teachers the past couple years at Jacob’s school. Public schools tend to get a bad rap, but the teachers and staff I’ve personally come to know really care about the kids and put in many long hours.

To all those teachers out there, THANK YOU!

    Thanks to both. Jacob said she liked it. If she doesn’t like coffee, she can buy an overpriced pastry.
