Office Depot: Teachers Change Lives - They did BB's

HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!

Today Babushka would like to join Office Depot in highlighting one of our most important and unsung heroes. Quee?? Ju So Fonii!!! Mother's are celebrated next month- today we celebrate teachers! Sometimes these dedicated souls have a bigger impact than even we as parents have; this was the case with BB and MAC.

Y'all know the impression (trauma) The Trios' Puberty ::shudder:: had on Babushka.  Being a single mom of 3 wasn't easy and in all honesty BB had no clue how to raise a teenage son.  MAC was/is a kind soul who loves his mama, but the testosterone was trying and climbing; he had to test it out- and not always in the smartest of ways. Needless to say, Babushka was very happy when he was attracted to his high school's ROTC program, and in particular when his Sgt. took a special interest in his welfare- in and out of classroom.  He was the male example MAC never had and we are forever grateful for his help and caring.  Imaginate how much he was a part in MACs life, how significant a role, my grandson's middle name was chosen in honor of the man. A lifelong gesture for a life changing and lifelong lesson.

Please help BB,Office Depot and Adopt-A-Classroom change more lives for the better.  The impact teachers have on our children's lives truly can be life changing and lifelong- let's acknowledge all they are to us and how vital they are to our future.  Do you know a teacher you'd like to celebrate and thank? Please share and have the non-profit organization, Adopt-A-Classroom bring attention to their efforts.

    • How to Register Your Classroom as a Teacher
      1. Go to Teachers Change Lives website 
      2. Click on the red box that says "Register Your Classroom," which will take you to the Adopt-A-Classroom website
      3. Follow the corresponding steps from there
    • How to Donate to a Teacher
      1. Go to Teachers Change Lives website 
      2. Click on the teal "Donate to a Teacher" box on the Teachers Change Lives website , which will take you to the Adopt-A-Classroom website
      3. Follow the corresponding steps from there

A lifechanging and lifelong impression- it happens more often than we realize.

To our Sgt. and ALL Stellar Teachers:

1000x Gracias.
