Teacher Treats

Contrary to popular childhood belief (that teachers live at school and never leave the building!) teachers actually do have homes, hobbies, and even kids of their own!

Yes, teachers are people, too.

With all that is required of teachers - and how young lives are touched in such a tremendous way - it is amazing that there isn't a special hall of fame for teachers. Until then, why not show your favorite teacher how much you appreciate them?

On Teacher Appreciation Day, anything that comes from a student's heart, even just a spoken "thank you", will mean the world to a teacher.

Teacher Appreciation Day gift ideas

Besides flowers and cards, popular gift ideas or teachers may include a gourmet gift basket, a "Best Teacher" trophy or coffee mug, a book of inspirational poems or quotes.

For a great group gift, parents may also organize the presentation of a more expensive gift by chipping in for a new leather brief case, an inscribed sterling silver pen set or other gifts that a teacher might especially appreciate.
