A few months back I saw this ingenious little idea on Pinterest and traced the source to the SWAPS-a-lot website -- a great source for readymade Girl Scout swap kits. Fast forward to this final week of student teaching in a first-grade classroom. I wanted to give each student a little something to remember me by. I wanted to do something sweet, inexpensive and with an inspiring message.
