Teacher Appreciation!

Teacher Appreciation Week May 3 – 9 and Teacher Appreciation Day May 5

Students often show appreciation for their teachers with token gifts. One popular token gift teachers often receive is flowers.
The National Education Association describes National Teacher Day as “a day for honoring teachers and recognizing the lasting contributions they make to our lives.”
Everybody who does something good, important and valuable deserves a day in their honor. Teachers certainly are among the more deserving. This day honors those hard working, patient and understanding people whom we entrust our children to. Teachers mold our kids in a positive direction, and affect who they are and who they become. From Kindergarten through college, teachers are an important part of children’s lives.

Did you know?

Administrative Professionals Day formerly known as Secretary’s Day is an unofficial holiday observed on the Wednesday of the last full week of April, or Administrative Professionals Week (formerly known as National Secretaries Week).

This week was created in 1952 in conjunction with the National Secretaries Association to recognize the work of secretaries, administrative assistants, receptionists, and other administrative support professionals.The goal was to encourage more people to consider careers in the secretarial/administrative support field.

The first official period of appreciation took place during the week of June 1-7 in 1952, with Wednesday, June 4, 1952 designated National Secretaries Day.

In 1955, the observance date of National Secretaries Week was moved to the last full week of April. The name was changed to Professional Secretaries Week in 1981, and became Administrative Professionals Week in 2000 to encompass the expanding responsibilities and wide-ranging job titles of administrative support staff.

Over the years, Administrative Professionals Week has become one of the largest workplace observances. The event is celebrated worldwide, bringing together millions of people.In the United States, the day is often celebrated by giving gifts such as flowers, candy, trinkets, lunch at a restaurant, or time off.

Top picks for indoor plants

Plants are commonly known for converting carbon dioxide into oxygen, but certain plants are also good for ridding our air of indoor contaminants.

Three common types of household toxins are Benzene-based, Formaldehyde-based and Trichloroethylene-based.

  • Some sources of Benzene-based toxins include detergents, plastics, tobacco smoke and synthetic fibers.A few of the best plants to remove these toxins are the Spathiphyllum (Peace Lily), Gerbera Daisy and Alglaonema (Chinese Evergreen).
  • Formaldehyde-based toxins originate from such items as carpeting, furniture, cleaners and paper products. Bamboo plants, Philodendrons, Ivy and Golden Pothos are just some green plants that are best for the removal of these toxins.
  • Inks, varnishes, adhesives and paints are a couple examples of where Trichloroethylene-based toxins may come from. Plants associated with the removal of these toxins include Dracaena, Gerbera Daisy, Spathiphyllum (Peace Lily) and Chrysanthemum.
