Thank-you notes and letter
“The best end-of-the year gift that I ever got was a letter from a parent who wrote me a lengthy note thanking me for everything that I had done to help her son throughout the school year. I get it out and read it every time that I have a bad day to remind me why I love teaching, and I also have a copy of it in my portfolio so that it is something that I could use in future interviews.”—Sandra I via Facebook
Many teachers don’t feel comfortable receiving gifts. But they love good, old-fashioned thank-you notes and letters. If you want to add an extra touch use these Grow A Flower thank-you cards ($18 for a pack of five) with seeds embedded in the paper, which once planted will sprout into wildflowers.
