I taught 1st and 2nd grade for several years. My favorite gift was a thoughtful note/card. It was rare to get one where the family really took time in writing it, and it meant a lot.

This exactly! Knowing there is support at home is 10x better than an actual gift. Very sweet tho!

I agree with a note of thanks or even a verbal I appreciate you is pretty awesome. Too often we only hear about things people are unhappy with so when parents just say thanks it means a lot.

Re: Any Teachers here?

I'm not a teacher... But,

One Mom gave me a Bevmo gift card when she was going through a divorce and her son made my job super hard for a while.

The card said "I was going to make you a crayon letter for your wall, but decided you might need this more...thank you for helping us through this".

Some days she would walk in and say "If he's not here when I come back, I'll completely understand". Which makes it nice. I hate it when parents act like "wow...he never does that at home". It's good to be acknowledged for what we do.

Re: Any Teachers here?

Thank you mamas, for all the great ideas! I think I'll sit down and write her a note and give her a big gift card, it's been a long haul. I know he's gonna be something great one day.. it's just going to be a JOB getting there. LOL!

That's great. Keep in mind that some of the traits/personalities that can be the mist difficult to parent are great life skills!
