Something Nice for Teacher!

Thanks to my friend BarbinNebraska for the heads up on an article highlighting end of the year gifts for teachers. Personally, most of the teachers I know would take a pass on number 5. Barb's reminder is very timely. Even if your kids have already finished school for the year, it's wonderful to remember the caring educators who took time this year to help you form and love them. Rather than a "cutesy" apple themed gift (unless it's the Apple whose products start with "i"), think gift cards, scrip, or even credit at the local teacher supply store. Remember the include a handwritten letter thanking Teacher for her care and attention to your child. End of the year gifts don't need to cost a lot of money to be thoughtful and meaningful.

Thank you for writing this, especially the part about the notes. I have received an array of presents over 20 plus years.
Many I have used, some I have given away, but the notes are keepers to be sure.
