Why? Because the kids LOVE it! I of course cut in line of all the students, push them aside, and say "me first" as I'm doing it. Seeing me outside the Art Room is a big treat. And surprising some of my students by plopping myself down next to them feels great for all of us. Smiles all around the table. Opportunities for social time with students are few and far between. You gotta take it when you can.
What's on the menu today? Turkey, stuffing, and and mashed potatoes with gravy! A little protein and a lot of carbs.
And for dessert I'll dive into the all the sweet treats my students have been bringing me all week long.
This is a great time of year for all of us to show appreciation to each other. Stop by your students table at your next lunch break. They'll love it!
