ok teachers...this question is for you.
my girls are in kindergarten and i am pretty involved in each of their classrooms. i would like to get something that i know the teachers would appreciate and use.
if you're a teacher, what kinds of end-of-year gifts would you like to receive???
thanks:)

I usually do Starbucks gift cards (in the states) because that's what I like ;p

Here we don't have this, and we aren't supposed to do teacher gifts except as a class, as a whole. Min, correct me if I'm wrong?

Oh! My sister is a teacher and loves, loves getting books or book GC.

Smooches,

You're right, here gifts to teachers (except maybe a drawing your kid did and wants to give to the teacher) are considered bribery so they (the teachers) are not allowed to accept anything.

what????? even end of the year gifts...as a thank you for helping our kids grown and learn throughout the year???
actually, it seems to be the opposite here or at our school anyway. our school requires family volunteering as part of their acceptance to the school. so the families are very involved in the classrooms, and i know the teachers really appreciate that. my girls will make them something too, but i will definitely be getting them some goodies.
thanks for your input though:)
