When a teacher makes a difference in your child’s life, you want to say thank-you. But it can be hard to know what to give a teacher when the only conversations you’ve had have been about your child’s academic progress. Teacher gifts don’t need to be expensive. Simple, handmade items often carry the greatest sentiment. Teacher Appreciation Week (the first week of May) and the end of the school year are especially good times to say thanks. Whatever gift you choose, be sure to add a written note from you or your child.
