We Heart Teachers

Since I didn't send Henry to preschool, this was our first year in a classroom and I'm just sitting here, blinking, wondering how it can possibly be June already?! There were lots of great things about the year, but the very best thing was Henry's darling teacher. I never imagined I'd be so sentimental at the end of the year, but I know we had a gem of a teacher this year and I'm so sad to move on!

As you might suspect, I want to do something sweet for her next week to show just a tiny shadow of the adoration and appreciation we feel for her. I've had fun poking around the internets for inspiration. Wanted to share a few of my favorites with you:

(would be cute to give with a pretty cake mix or stick to a glass jar filled with sweets.)

Hope this gets your wheels turning for end-of-the-year teacher gifts. As cute as all these ideas are, probably the most meaningful gift we can give teachers is a thoughtful note expressing sincere gratitude for what they do.

In addition to your children's teachers I like to write a little note during the year to random teachers that taught ME years ago and thank them for teaching me.

Cute ideas!

Occasionally we like to write little thank yous to our children's primary teachers. It's so often a thankless calling!
