I came back from class last week to find a small box on my desk.
“It is a present, Carrie-teacher!” my co-T explained. “From the office staff.”
I opened it to find this stamp.
“All teachers get,” my co-T said, smiling happily.
Cool! I thought happily.
I tried it out a few times on a scrap piece of paper. Then I figured out how to change the date, so I had to try it out a few more times. I was looking around for something else to stamp when my co-T came over.
“Carrie-teacher!!” she gasped, sounding horrified. “What are you doing?”
“Carrie-teacher,” she sighed in a voice usually reserved for very small children who have been very naughty. “Is no for daily use. Ink is very expensive.”
I have put the stamp in my bottom drawer. I don’t want to leave it on my desk where I can see it all the time and be tempted into using it. I must save it for exciting and special occasions! I wonder what an appropriate stamping occasion would be?
