Parent appreciation, it's great to communicate and have good relationships with your parents that way they can come in and help with different activities throughout the year. Just make sure at the end you have the kids help you make a little thank you note!
Teacher Survival I like this because it's actually things the teacher can use for themselves and not school supplies. Kits to give at the beginning of the year - Might be one of the best teacher gift ideas Ive seen yet
I make thumbprint art every year of my class. I make the print match their personality! Its fun to look back at each class! Now I'm thinking it's a great teacher gift! This was made on canvas. Paint pen for lettering, ribbon on outer edge, and different ribbon to hang from.
