Teacher Gifts

cover1


My kids do not do teacher gifts anymore. In University it would be considered a bribe in high school it isn't really done, at least not as a senior.  I wish that all the awesome school themed stamps and designs were available when my kids were small and we were doing teacher gifts for all the teachers.

My daughter, however, did a two credit co-op this past semester in a JK/SK class as she wants to follow in my footsteps and be a teacher. Last week on her last day, "Miss Brooklyn" came home with 25 handmade cards from her students.  She will never throw them away, I know that. Yesterday was the SK graduation so she went back for the festivities and wanted to take a gift for the teachers she worked with as well as the SERT and the EA. We had planned on making sets of thank you card for each, but Brooklyn decided that she would like to give each of them some of my cards (since I have so many of them). So she selected an assortment of birthday, thank you, sympathy, all occasion and get well cards. We packaged them up along with envelopes in glassine bags, tied them with bakers twine and created thank you tags for the fronts.

These packets are adorable, Tracey! I really miss being able to make these kind of projects for my kids teachers and classmates (they're both teens now and like you said it just isn't cool to do it at that age lol!)

What a lovely way to say 'Thank You', Tracey! I'm sure Brooklyn's teachers and mentors are going to cherish your gorgeous cards...in fact, they may never give them away :-)

Oh what wonderful gifts to those lucky teachers/advisors! I'm sure they were just thrilled, and will never forget your daughter's thoughtfulness. The red and white baker's twine looks so good with those bright, red apples. What a package!
