I was one of the worst students ever. I am sure that if my past teachers were to hear my name they would probably cringe. I always talked and was continually moved around in hopes to keep my talking to a minimum. This week is a week that several parents need to make sure they celebrate. Chances are, like me, your kid may be the reason for many headaches. Teacher Appreciation Week kicks off today, Monday and some restaurants are showing their appreciation of teachers the best way we know how with free food and stellar discounts. The biggest day of discounts is on Tuesday. Don't forget to take your valid School ID to cash in on your discounts!
