It’s Teacher Appreciation Week! Hug One? Show Them You Do Care! :)

Yay! It’s Teacher Appreciation Week and as the official day approaches (Tuesday is appreciation day) I must provide a letter to all the lovely teachers/professors that helped me become the educated and well written writer I am today!

So share your Cinco de Mayo with the teachers! šŸ˜€
