Teacher Gifts

At the end of the school year, I usually try to do something nice for the teacher. Really there is no way to adequately say "thank you" for all they've done for my children but I hope the effort is worth something anyway. For my 5th grader's teacher I have a fun idea but for my special needs preschooler... I just don't know.

Crew has an awesome preschool teacher and then there is the aide.... the bus driver, the bus drivers aide, the school's PT, the OT, the speech pathologist, the vision consultant, the audiologist.... they are all quite instrumental in our lives. I mean really, where does it stop? I want to do something really nice for the teacher and I want to recognize the others but don't want to break the bank either.

Any idea? Do you give gifts and if so, to whom?

Last year I did gifts for all 8 of Mason's teachers and both of his bus drivers. I baked them a loaf of bread, gave them some homemade jam, and had a really cute saying to go with it. They loved it.

all of those are great ideas. We didn't do any. I was feeling a litle ticked. But those are great ideas
