This week is Teacher Appreciation Week at our school. Ella's teacher, Debbie Reiber, is one of those exceptional, amazing and gifted teachers. She's been a huge blessing to all of us. She's loving yet firm, consistent, and her classroom is very structured. These qualities are so important to help children feel safe. But she's also fun and creative, which makes learning a joy for her students. We couldn't appreciate her more.
Today was Ella's day to bring Mrs. Reiber a special gift. I know Debbie's favorite color is red and she enjoys quilting, because I gave her a questionnaire to fill out at the beginning of the year that asked her favorites. (I also passed it along to the room mother.)
I know I broke my own rule about not giving teachers anything apple-related, but this Apple of My Eye line of quilting fabric by Riley Blake I found is delightful! I purchased a fat quarter of each of the patterns the shop had and packaged them up in a simple clear box. I also included a gift certificate to the quilt shop and a heartfelt letter of appreciation from Lynn and me.
Simple is nice. I hope Mrs. Reiber enjoys. :)
