After two tough years in high school, my daughter finally hit her stride, mostly thanks to some amazing teachers. They seem to get that they are teaching STUDENTS, not just a subject
I wanted to do something nice for each of the seven. Now, I was a teacher. A middle- and high-school teacher. I have a box full of apple gifts upstairs that I still laugh about. When I taught in public schools (like this one), I got VERY few gifts at all, even apples, but I liked them when I got them, so even though it is high school, I sent teacher gifts on this, the last week of school.
The art teacher got this frugal coaster set. I would have loved this in my writing classroom, even if the little coasters were something like $2 at CVS a couple weeks ago.
I just used Publisher to make each temporary (?) insert showing part of a famous artwork, with a quote by the creator:
In their box:
Most of the teachers got record bowls full of really useful supplies like dry-erase markers, post-it notes, colored paper clips, room scent, etc., that you just can't have too many of:
Her Talented and Gifted teacher also got a gift card to a restaurant in hers.
The creative writing teacher got a quickly created fleece and felt Alot in her bowl, after I found it here and shared it with her, she taught her students using the link!
Next year I'll have TWO highschoolers. Any ideas for then?!
