Listen, honey...You can't scare me!
Yeah! I had a little time for myself today and stamped this card for my sister who lives in California.
My sister, Michele is a Special Ed teacher in a High School. She is absolutely terrific and everyone loves her. She is vivacious, compassionate, warm and caring. And she's one tough cookie.
Before I left for California I had ordered some stamps from the American Art Stamp Co. When I saw this stamp, I knew that I had to have it to make her a card. Little did I know then that this image would be so apropos! (I have no affiliation with this company, but check them out...they have some really neat images)
While we were having dinner one night she was telling us of a situation that arose in her class room. One of her students would not take off his sunglasses and she suspected that he was high on something so she asked him to remove his sunglasses. He refused and then started to curse at her. She removed him from the classroom and took him to the office where he created such a scene that the principle came out of his office and asked what the problem was. The student became belligerent and threatened her life! He was expelled from school and a threat assessment team was brought in! I know that this in not funny at all. it's actually quite serious. She just shrugs it off as if it's something that occurs everyday. Amazing!
So for all of the teachers out there, Thank you for all that you do!
