Dear DJ Friends…
Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! It just makes me smile to type that out. I know we sound like a broken record here at DJ Inker’s for our love of teachers (the many various sorts). But…truly… we’re so grateful for the many teachers we’ve worked with over the years. Your support and creativity with how you’ve used DJ clipart and fonts over the years inspires us and keeps me going. Really…I can’t thank you enough!
Going to drop into the ol’ memory bank here for a bit and tell you about my first grade teacher Mrs. Merrill. In my seven year old mind, she was the prettiest teacher in our elementary school, smelled like jasmine and spoke in a quiet singsong voice. She was the teacher that when it was her turn to be the teacher on the playground, all we wanted to do for recess was hold her hand and listen to her stories about when she was young. She also used a lot of Carson-Dellosa art work in her room and that’s when I fell deeply in love with big bold colors and cute smiles on the bulletin boards she decorated our room with. I can’t thank Mrs. Merrill enough for ‘planting the seed of creativity’ in me at an early age. And I wish I could buy the perfume she wore every day! I know we all have that one special teacher that made a huge difference in our lives and sent us on a path we would have never gone on if they hadn’t presented a new way of learning and taught us the skills to achieve it.
As I’m sure every teacher has heard a million times, “to teach is to touch lives forever”. It’s an old quote, but a true one. One week during a year doesn’t seem like enough time to thank the teachers that have changed our lives forever. So it’s my sincere hope that this week is a fabulous one for every teacher, parent and educator!
Our way of thanking you is putting the entire DJ Inker’s store on SALE. Every single smile your heart desires at the DJ store is 25% off (excluding commercial licenses).
