Ever want to know what teachers REALLY want for Christmas from their students/parents? I can tell you – it’s NOT ceramic mugs! Seriously – don’t do that to your child’s teacher. They probably have received enough of them to line around the globe. I know they are cheap, but a teacher’s holiday gift doesn’t have to be expensive to be thoughtful or useful! In fact it doesn’t even have to be holiday related – many of our teachers spend their own money out of pocket to purchase supplies for your children and would be more than happy to receive extra supplies during the holidays instead!
