After scouring the Internet to find a creative way to show their students’ how much they’re missed, Kindergarten teacher Carrie Boone found the perfect idea.

“I saw another teacher post on Instagram about these signs and thought it was such a cute idea,” said Carrie Boone. “I sent it to my team and we got it approved by our principal.”

All the Kindergarten teachers at the school teamed up on the project, spending about four hours printing the vinyl signs and another five hours delivering them.

The signs have a simple message: “My teacher misses me!”

“It took a lot of time, but seeing my student's smiling, excited faces, as well as many thankful and tearful parent's faces, made my heart so happy!” added teacher Sheri Sheppard.

The signs are posted in all the yards of students who live in houses. For students in apartments, teachers delivered the signs to put in a window.

Although the teachers kept their distance, even seeing the student from far away made an impact.

“It was the best day I have had in a long time. It made my teacher heart so happy to see the smiles on their faces and the tears in their parents’ eyes,” said teacher Caitlin Turner. “It was worth all of the time and money to make this a special day for them.”

In total, the team will hand deliver about 90 signs. 

“As a first year Kindergarten teacher, it has been really hard to not get to finish the year with them. There are no words that can express how much I miss them and miss creating memories,” said Carrie.
