Teachers! A job that seems like so much fun. They don’t work that hard, right? Wrong!
I wish everyone would have to be in the classroom for a few days to get the feel for what it is really like. Oh, there are great times! There is so much fun too!!! Party days are great but they are also a lot of work. There is so much work to do which no one ever sees.
Anyway, your teacher deserves to be thanked every once in a while. But, what do they really want?
Well, guess what? I am a teacher and I am going to tell you my top 5 favorite gifts!!
- Letters and Pictures
- Parents and students- Nothing means more to me than pictures and notes of appreciation from the people I dedicate my school year to.
- Gift Cards
- Nothing says appreciation like spending time in the classroom or helping the teacher do some copying, cutting, laminating, etc… Time is an incredibly precious commodity.
4. Office Supplies
- Every teacher I have EVER talked to LOVES, LOVES LOVES office supplies.
- Post-it notes
- felt tip pens
- glitter gel pens
- Smelly Markers
5. Recognition from the Principal
When you have amazing service at a restaurant, what do you do? I go and find a manager to let them know. Why not let the administration know something positive about your teacher? I promise it will make everyone involved feel better.
Obviously, this is not an exhaustive list. But, this is what I most appreciate from my students…a diet Pepsi and chocolate never hurt either. 😉 Please remember your hardworking middle, jr, and high school, teachers. I know there are more of them but most of these items are free or low cost.
