  6. Nancy Bonaparte says:

    I’d really Love to win this for a very special teacher friend. We work in the same school and she gets very creative in her lessons. She has 5 children of her own whom she’d like to spend more time doing crafts at home, this would be such a great gift for her. To use both at school and specially at home.

  7. My little sis teaches fourth grade and would love to win! I Amos thankful for the heart, passion, love and patience that goes into teaching! Thanks for this opportunity. :)

  8. I’d love to have one of these as well as another set for a teacher! It’d be a hard decision which one, my sons have many wonderful teachers…

  9. I adore my daughter’s 1st grade teacher because she works so hard to give the individualized instruction that all kids need. She cares when kids are above grade level and challenges them and doesn’t hold them back to the rest of the class. She has an obvious love for teaching and for her students and it’s been such a pleasure watching my daughter bloom this year under her care.

  10. I would love to win this!!! My granddaughter’s teacher would love to have this for club activities! Perfect for teachers!

  11. Bekie Wiley says:

    My sons Teacher Kim is very creative in how she keeps the kids motivated to learn. In one center they are allowed to sit on the table while they read thier site words!

  13. DENISE DIETZ says:

    Judy is over 60+ years young and still gives her heart, time, effort and love to special needs students at an elementary school where she teaches. This lady is so energetic and craftily as well. Kids have learned to rubber-stamp bookmarks, cards and gift tags. She also planted a Butterfly Garden at this school along with her students. Although a few years ago Judy lost the love of her life (her husband) to lung cancer, but she has never lost her love for children, teaching and crafts. If it is a craft, Judy want to be in the middle of it! Her students love her and so do her friends! She would LOVE one of these Cuttlebug Machines and she would probably be one of the first people to wear one out! (if that is even possible!)

  14. nicole philavong says:

    my sons teachers are very patient with him

  15. morentin1326 says:

    Wow… what an awesome giveaway… I would love to win one for Ms. Bunger… she is my son’s special education teacher (he has autism) but she goes above and beyond because my daughter is not in her class (she also has autism) and she watches out for her too… so in my book she is just awesome… she makes my kids feel safe, and she looks out for them… and to me that is what makes her awesome… so even if I don’t win it for Ms. Bunger, I am still a winner because she is more than just a teacher…

  16. I love my daughter’s 2nd grade teacher! She has gone above and beyond this year and has helped my daughter break out of her shell and she FINALLY has some wolf confidence!!!!

  17. My sons teacher has been amazing!!!! he struggled with speech and his teacher has gone above and beyond to help him get to the same level as the rest of the class.

  22. Haley Whittington says:

    I’m in college and I have one of the best teachers in college. She is an absolute delight. My success in my junior level class was due to her fantastic teaching skills. Unfortunately she is about to retire to pursue a business venture. I would love to be able to give back something to her to show my appreciation.

  23. Wendy Chapman says:

    My teacher is kind and patient.

  24. Leslie Buckmaster says:

    My daughter is in Kinder this year. I have logged many volunteer hours this year and in doing so have come to highly appreciate all of the teachers at that school. The unity among the teachers is unwavering. My daughters teacher is impressive, accommodating and she has a fabulous demeanor. The children love her to pieces. We have rightly spoiled her this year and she has earned it all!!

    My youngest has the best teacher ever , her name is Heather Drew and she has been tutoring him since school started in Math. She went with us for a meeting to see if he needed to be tested for a learning problem , and got choked up while speaking about what he was having trouble with. We thanked her for caring so much about our child and she said ” Josie I think of him as my own!” Mind you she has two of her own children she goes above and beyond the call of teacher in my book!

  59. Stacey says:

    My son is blessed to have a sweet teacher a second time around: he enjoyed her as his third grade teacher, and this year she has moved up to 8th to teach Earth Science. She’s had a trying year; new age group (!!), new lesson plans, and battling her husband’s cancer diagnosis. He’s doing well but still in treatment. While helping him, she’s always at school with a smile on her face, teaching her passion, and yes-scrapbooking the year away. She also created embroidered school mascot “sweat towels” for my son when he she found out he was playing football. She’s more than a teeacher, she’s motherly. What a gift to have her in our lives again!

  60. Kasey C. says:

    Great giveaway.

  61. Sumer Duncan says:

    I would love to share this gift with a co worker. She is our special ed teacher and is always handmaking gifts for others just because. She will never accept money or gifts in return for the gifts she makes, but you know that it costs her alot in time and money! What a blessing and witness she is to others in what true kindness and being selfless should be! :)

What else can I say but Ms.Waldo your awesome!!!!

  100. Shawn B! says:

    My favorite teacher doesn’t have one of my children this year. We have been fortunate to have her with boy #1 4 years ago, and boy #2 last year. Hoping girl #1 gets her next year. My family recently experienced a family crisis the week before P/T conferences. This teacher made a point of finding out when I would be at conferences to be able to come, give me a hug, and tell me that her family would pray for use through the duration of our ordeal! We LOVE her! She didn’t have to do anything, we don’t even have her this year! But what a fabulous gesture, coming from someone whom I trust the lives of my children with. It makes me appreciate all the care she puts into their learning even more. Knowing that she’s also looking out for their hearts. Thanks for the giveaway!

  101. My son gets great one on one attention!

  102. Jennie says:

    Her teacher goes above and beyond her duty and deserves more!

  103. My step-daughter starting living with us last summer and switched schools this year. We’ve been so fortunate for her teacher who has taken the time to help her during this transition. She has been very willing to work with us and work with her on things beyond schoolwork. She has helped her develop socially, which was a big concern of for us and we are so thankful.

  104. my 2nd grader’s teacher is great. she seems to “get” the kids – especially the boys (which our student is). she knows they need to be silly and have fun, but she expects a lot of them. she has high expectations for their learning, but also for them as individuals. she expects them to be good people, good citizens, good members of a class. she reinforces those same expectations we have at home and uses positive ways to accomplish this. to me, a teacher isn’t just someone who teaches the lessons or the information in the curriculum. it’s someone like her. who loves her students and knows what kind of people they can become, and strives to help them get there.

  105. Denise says:

    Our teacher is a special ed teacher – she works with children who have a learning disability and she has the patience of a saint. Since we have been at that school – she has moved every grade with us and that keeps us all secure. We will be leaving the school and going to another part of the state. I wish I could take her with us. But her Sister lives where we are moving and we will be getting together when she comes down or when we visit family here.
