We are proud to work with the Nashville Public Education Foundation, a group working to improve Public Education in the Nashville area. During May, the NPEF is celebrating teachers with their “Show Your Love for Teachers” campaign, running all month long. Monday May 14th just happened to be National Buttermilk Biscuit Day, so we helped the NPEF show some area teachers a little love with our biscuits & preserves! Below, see some great photos of our school visits:

Postcards thanking Nashville’s teachers covered the tables in the teachers’ lounge at McKissack Middle School. The NPEF is coordinating a five-stop road show display of these postcards.
