As Chicagoans, we car pooled to the 'burbs during our first year of employment. We became good friends and have shared lots of laughter and a few tears over the years.
I was so excited to learn that this very, worthy teacher has been selected to receive the Award of Merit from the Illinois State Board of Education.
While baking Halloween cookies, I decided to make a few special cookies for Linda and one of my "cookie cards", a home made card illustrated with pictures of the cookies.
Linda's collection will include a few cookies in honor of, ¡Hoy es Viernes! A tradition in Linda's Advanced Placement Spanish Class, that evolved from a weekly greeting, to brightly colored t-shirts, to a classroom bulletin board featuring the t-shirts being worn in locations all over the world.
Linda's card will say:
Fly Swatters, iPads and now even Twitter. . . are just a few of the items in your creative bag of TRICKS.
for this teacher who Excels!
Congratulations on your
recognition from the
Illinois State Board of Education!
A search of the web turned up many designs for skeleton and trick or treat bag cookies, but if you are interested in a step-by-step tutorial, check out:
