The end of the school year is the perfect time to give teachers a little thank you for their hard work throughout the year.
This year, Roosevelt School staff got a special surprise for National Teacher Appreciation Week.
The para-professionals at the school, previously known as teacher and student aids, got together this year to surprise the teachers by covering their doors in elaborate decorations.
One of these assistants found the idea of door decorating as a unique teacher appreciation token.
But, she took it to the next level.
They took each teacher's specific interests and hobbies and turned them into a collage on their doors as a way of saying "thanks."
The students are enjoying the new doors as well, and are voting all week on which one should win the grand prize.
Angi Powers, the one behind the project, says she wishes she would have had a camera to capture the reactions when the surprise was found.
(Angi Powers, Para-Professional at Roosevelt Elementary) "It makes my heart happy. They do so much for our kids here at Roosevelt and it's just the least that we could do to show them how grateful we are for what they do for our kids."
