Ashley Greenhouse is a mother and attorney, but now, she’s adding another job to the resume.
“I’ve been taking sewing lessons for about two years now from a lady named Ms. Helen and I never thought I would be sewing masks but I’m telling you it’s coming in handy right now.”
As many educators across the country are divided from their students. The love they usually receive during this week was subtracted.
“We always think it’s really important to honor our teachers. We really look forward to teacher’s appreciation week” said Greenhouse.
She said, although this year is different, she wanted the teachers to know their hard work never goes unnoticed.
“Although we’re not in school, it’s no different. I think even now, we have a greater appreciation for how much we really appreciate the teachers being home and trying to teach them the best we can.”
Wrapped up in plastic with a red tie. Greenhouse said, the gifts were the perfect idea during this pandemic.
“Disinfecting wipes and gloves and toilet paper, things that everybody is looking for. We thought, we’d give it to the teachers.”
Along with the items wrapped, the teachers are receiving mask with educational prints, gift cards and cookies. Greenhouse said, although the school year is over, the love and appreciation for educators is multiplying.
“Teachers, you are appreciated, you are missed we already knew you were valuable. We really know how valuable you are. Get ready for next year, these kids are ready for you.”
