Teacher gifts: Better than buying the teacher a pony
Every year I tell my children's teachers thank you, and every year it feels inadequate. Often when I write notes to go with various teacher gifts, I write, You totally deserve a pony, but I thought this would make less of a mess.
Thank goodness I now have a second offering from veteran teacher Phillip Done in Close Encounters of the Third-Grade Kind.
(We suggested his first book, 32 Third Graders and One Class Bunny
back in the spring). In Close Encounters
, Done continues sharing the best, the worst, the ridiculous, and the touching from his perspective as a teacher who really does adore his students. It's a great read for anyone -- what better way to get a warm fuzzy about public school and the kids who are our future? But it's also a nice way to tell teachers that you really do understand and appreciate the hard work they're doing.
And it's a lot smaller than a farm animal. -Mir
