I usually try to be very thoughtful when it comes to buying end of year gifts for my son’s teachers- I so appreciate all that they do, and know that there is no way I could have the patience that one must have to be a teacher! I usually try to get gifts that will “go away”- realizing that there are only so many “#1 Teacher” mugs, etc that someone can use! Food items, gift cards, notepaper and candles are some things that I’ve bought in the past.
This year, I am deeply grateful to the guidance counselor and gifted resource teacher at my son’s school. My older son had a very difficult year emotionally, and they were both incredibly helpful to him and I. I want to do something for them that is more than the “standard”- I plan on writing a very heartfelt letter to each, expressing my feelings. Does anyone have suggestions for what might be a good gift?
