This year for Teacher Appreciation Week, the SLT (school leadership) wanted to do something different and fun for the teachers and staff. One of the SLT moms approached me with this idea of serving fresh fruit smoothies. Well, she came to the right person because I know a thing or two about smoothies (hint: I use to own Tropical Squeeze Smoothies in several malls in the Metro Detroit Area).
I made a total of 45 some fresh fruit smoothies. The teachers and staff got to choose from Pom-Berry Blend, Carrot Mango Tango, or Sunshine Burst smoothies. They even had the choice of adding extra’s such as: Fruyo vanilla yogurt, protein powder, flax seed meal, chia seeds, and/or hemp seeds!

Some of you maybe thinking,”are teachers worth these kinds of tributes?” Hmm, you bet! How many of you can remember a teacher who made a difference in your life? So let the teacher appreciation festivities begin. Roll out the special snacks (don’t forget the silly puns), place beautiful flowers on their desks, send them special notes, and host a fancy lunch. They most certainly deserve it.
