Teacher Appreciation Week 2012

Teacher Appreciation Week starts today, and as my son's class room parent, it's my job to organize the class gift. In addition to a sentimental gift graciously prepared by another mom, I thought their teacher would enjoy something small everyday. Pulling together ideas from a couple of different web sites, I'm doing the following:

Monday - A tube of hand cream with a note that says "You deserve a hand"

Tuesday - A container of pushpins with a note that says "You are 'sharp' as a tack"

Wednesday - A pad of post-its and labels with a note that says "Just a 'note' to let you know you are a wonderful teacher"

Thursday - A Scotch desk-grip dispenser with a note that says "We are stuck on you"

On Friday, we'll give her the sentimental gift and some cash, since - like most teachers I know - their teacher spends quite a bit of her own money on her classroom and supplies.

Inspiration found at Surviving a Teacher's Salary and Skip to My Lou.
