Back to School- What Do Teachers Really Want?

back to schoolTeacher gifts are commonplace on Appreciation Days, holidays, or the last day of school. But have you ever considered a teacher gift on the first day of a new school year? It is a great way to express support and confidence in your child’s incoming teacher, and set the tone for your very important relationship. In a recent study regarding teacher gifts, the teachers reported than the number one thing they would like to receive is a heartfelt note from an appreciative parent. Other popular selections were gift cards, or items that would be useful in the classroom.
