Well, we are halfway through my Teacher Appreciation Series now. I must admit that I am a bit depressed about not having the time to share so many of the things that I wanted to for Earth Day. I am going to visit My Mommy in the great state of Georgia this weekend and am trying to get as much done before I leave as possible. Needless to say, many projects have gone by the wayside, including some of my Earth Day ones.
So for the meantime, I hope you will enjoy the remainder of this series. This next gift doesn't have to be for a teacher, but I thought it fitting for one. I am so thankful for those teachers who were always encouraging me to dig deeper and excel. Some teachers that come to my mind are my high school drama and choir teachers. I am so thankful to Mr. Stephens for always encouraging me to continue performing even when I didn't feel like it and when the "drama" of the Drama Club made me want to cry. Another teacher that I will always remember is Ms. Riggins, my choir teacher. I am so thankful that she taught me the do's and dont's of vocals. To this day, it makes me absolutely crazy when I hear vocalists sing "what chew" instead of "what you". Another vocal pet peeve of mine: goat singers. No explanation necessary! These teachers taught me so many valuable lessons that I will never forget. They have made me in to who I am today. For those that don't know me, I am a performer at heart. I spent sometime performing professionally when I graduated from college. It was a dream come true. I don't think I would have made it to that level had it not been for great teachers like them.
Enough about me though! I am starting to tear up now!

This card is sized 5x7 and I just glued it to a piece of cardstock folded in half to make my card.

Here's a little funny for anyone that needs a laugh today. That's me as the cheerleader in yucky spandex singing my heart out in Dollywood's Acappella Show "The Gemtones" 2006.
