My favorite gift I have ever gotten was an ornament that one of my students painted for me. I put it on my tree every year and it makes me smile. Because teachers spend so much money throughout the year, gift cards to the teacher store, office depot, wal mart, etc. is always appreciated. I always get way too much candy that I am way too tempted to eat. :) I think with anything, teaches just love feel being appreciated. We hope that parents understand how much we love and care for their children every day. Merry Christmas!
