For the maestra
Today I have been working on an apron for One's Spanish teacher in the dual-immersion program. According to One, Sra M wears one everyday. (Wouldn't you? All those sticky fingers...) I am really not liking the fabric as it is pictured, but it is still so pretty just looking at it, so you'll just have to trust me on this one. It is, of course, still in need of a pocket (as both of my others are still waiting as well), but this one gets priority and is guaranteed to get done because the last time I saw Sra M in an apron, her pockets were weighed down with all sorts of teacher-things. This pocket is a MUST.
Sra M is so amazing! She spends her days with 60 kindergartners, a good 20+ or so who have no idea what she's saying, yet she always has a smile on her face. One has the most perfect spanish accent/pronunciation because of her, and most importantly, he attributes all of his recently acquired dance moves to her. That alone just might be worth it.
