At the end of the year, many parents want to send in a present for the teacher. Here are some ideas for gifts that are always appreciated.
> A handmade card from the child with a heartfelt note
> A handwritten thank-you note from the parent
> A handmade gift: an ornament (appropriate at Christmastime), jewelry, a decorated vase, etc.
> School supplies
> Gift card for the classroom: a teacher store, an office store, a discount store like Wal-Mart
I know of a parent who sent in a gift nestled in shredded homework. People are still talking about it!
