Toasting San Diego Teachers

Whether it is a preschool teacher, middle school instructor, or college professor, teachers are special people that take on the challenging role of helping all of us learn and get skills, such as reading, writing, and critical thinking, which we will use the rest of our life. They inspire, motivate, and push to get us to be better and open our minds. These unsung heroes need to be thanked every day, but especially so when Teacher Appreciation Day on May 5th and Teacher Appreciation Week from May 3-8 come around. Now that those dates are nearly here, you may be wondering what you can get teachers to show how much you appreciate them. Here in San Diego, we have some ideas for local San Diego teachers that you appreciate them: AMAZING CYMBIDIUMS Stunning green cymbidium orchids with three to four spikes per plant are arranged in a stylish ceramic pot, offering a long-lasting way to stay thank you. HEAVEN AND HARMONY Light pink roses and white Asiatic lilies are presented in a clear vase. ZENSATIONAL As a unique presentation, this arrangement includes gorgeous green cymbidium orchids and ti leaves that are arranged within a 19" glass cylinder vase.  ALLEN'S JOY
