DIY Valentine’s Day Gift for Students
They can be easily be made in minutes and are very inexpensive to make! They make a great gift for teachers to give to their students also.
My Mother is a school teacher for special needs children. It is an overwhelming amount of work that is both challenging and rewarding. She has three grades at all times in her classroom, therefore, she never gets a break.
I volunteer and substitute teach in her classroom often and I am at an awe and admiration for the hard work and patience. One day in her classroom and I come home exhausted. Some days I can’t even talk after. These children require so much physically and emotionally that you are just drained at the end of the day. I honestly don’t know how my mother and her assistants do it day in and day out.
However, with each roadblock met there is also a milestone that is eventually reached. With each behavior modification challenge, there is a huge hug and smile later. These children love BIG. You can’t help but become attached and love them back.
Teachers don’t teach for pay; their paychecks are so small when you calculate all the after-hours put in. They teach for their heart. There is a quote, “Every child is gifted. They just unwrap their packages at different times.” Watching these children blossom is the biggest reward one can imagine. I am so proud of my mother for all the love, hard work, and time she puts into her classroom.
“Real heroes don’t wear capes. They teach.” – I love you Mom.
With that said, I am always bringing in goodies for my mother’s class. These kids have my heart and it brings me joy to see them happy. Their little faces light up whenever I bring them something special.
Making DIY Valentine’s Day gifts for students are so much fun and you can do it in minutes.
