I Was Teacher Ninja'd!
The months of April, May and June 2020 were a tough as an educator. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we went through multiple start-ups, and changing health and safety guidelines daily. One Sunday in June, I was folding laundry and heard a knock at the door. As I opened the door I found a basket with my name on it and a dinosaur running into a vehicle. The card said "You have been "Teacher Ninja'd" and the basket was filled with a coloring book, a gratitude journal, chocolate, scrunchies, and other goodies. I immediately started crying because I was overcome with gratitude. It was such a thoughtful gesture during such a challenging time for educators. It was a beautiful random act of kindness that I was extremely grateful for.
I managed to find out who did this random act, and returned the surprise a few weeks later. :)
