The disappointing thing is that I only got 2 cards. One wasn't really a card, but more a scrap of paper attached to a small chocolate.
The other card came attached to this gift:
So what else did we get? Well, we got flower corsages...
And we got cupcakes!
I mean, how could that NOT make my day?!? I was so happy because you don't often see cupcakes here. Sure, you see cakes. But not CUPcakes. Last year, I was annoyed because they bought a giant cake for my class that the Korean teacher and I wound up serving to the kids instead of being served ourselves. Not only did we have to share our gift with the children but we also had to wait on them. That severely pissed me off. This year, no cake for those little mutants. The Room Mothers brought kids and teachers alike a snack of fruit, cookies and juice. And WE got cupcakes to take home! Booyah!
But we got to leave early and we were gifted a box of fresh cherries which I was just ho-hum about since we already had 2 boxes of the suckers in our fridge. Then the chairman gave us all a cash bonus. Not a big one but still, enough to make us all feel appreciated. And THAT is what Teacher's Day is supposed to be about.
