Random 5 Friday . . .



1. I really enjoyed meeting Jahana Hayes, 2016 Teacher of the Year.

2. Early morning is filled with chirping birds of late.

3. Oh, by the way, SPRING finally arrived in Western Michigan.

4. Ever have to attend a gala like happening and have nothing to wear?

5. I could add many teachers to my Teacher of the Year list. 
These names come to mind . . . from my past . . .

Mr. Peacock, (my dad), Mrs. Peacock, (my mom.)
Mrs. McDonald (my favorite teacher, fifth grade)
Helen Foster, high school English teacher, I learned the most.
Mr. Kies, high school, math, geometry, algebra, patient with me
Terry, my brother, Art teacher, 35 years

These friends were excellent teachers
Elaine, Jane, Lynn, JoAnn, Doug, retired teachers

Teaching today . . .
Melissa, excellent middle school math teacher
Sue, para professional, elementary science
Michelle, It's A Small Town Life, elementary, blog friend
Bonnie, Living Life, preschool, kindergarten, blog friend

Teachers need our respect, kindness, honor and thankfulness.
I am sure you can name some favorites too!

Good morning, Lynne! I agree teachers need our respect, kindness and thankfulness. I love the hear the birds chirping early in the morning. Spring is a little slow around here, the weather is chilly and rainy! Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

I admire teachers, too. I've had many special ones in my life.

As a former teacher myself, I appreciate the great ones, too! Spring is here, too! :)

I think teachers nowadays have a more dificult time than in the post as many students have less respect for them, unfortunately.

I definitely had my favorites -- Mrs. Stone, Mr. Stroup, Mrs. Ruby... and a whole list of the college profs. What a wonderful teacher celebration! I like this!

Lynne, Thank you so much for mentioning me in your post. I am so blessed to do what I love with a group of women I dearly loved. Yes, I am ready for summer, but I will be equally ready for school to begin in the fall. Again, thank you! Hugs! Bonnie

I was fortunate in elementary and high school to have had excellent teachers - people who were really in a vocation. I blogged about Mlle Giroux, who taught me for two years and left a lasting impression.

Lovely tribute to teachers. Spring is about over here (never very long) and we are definitely in a summer pattern. Ugh! I love bird song. Have a great week.

I think Spring got lost again since I saw snow flakes on Saturday. I am ready for a little warmth.
