In another life, I used to be a music teacher. Most of the time especially as I taught in extremely difficult inner city London schools the first few years I was in the UK, I never got any appreciation from my students. Most of the them didnt even want to be there and it was one of the reasons why I ended up leaving the profession because I spent hours and hours planning my lessons only to spend the hour babysitting to disallusioned youth who wanted more to talk on their mobiles than listen to what I had to say. However, ocasionally there WERE kids who made it all worthwhile and even would bring you a card or made you something themselves as a token of appreciation and say 'Miss thank you for teaching us'. I dont need gifts personally because a Thank You means more to me than anything.
If you DO want to give gifts to your teacher (schools have either already broken up for the summer here or will be breaking up next week)....Scentsy has some very inexpensive options for a little something to say thank you. I'm going to cut to the chase here and tell you the ONE thing that I would have loved out of the Scentsy catalogue as a gift if I were teaching still: HAND LOTION. You are ALWAYS having to wash your hands as a teacher to avoid coming down with every sickness under the sun, then touching papers and books and everything all day long....YOUR HANDS just completely dry out. Hand Lotion isnt as personal as Shower Cream and you dont need to know the decor of their house like you would with a Scentsy Warmer.....its perfect, inexpensive and your child's teacher will ADORE YOU for giving something they desperately need that smells lush too. So What I'd do is get the Combine and Save Pack....You can have plenty to give to the teachers in your life with leftovers for you because you deserve something a little nice too dont you think?
If you are a teacher, we've had schools here in the UK where the teachers have gotten together and bought a warmer for every classrom. They put a lovely relaxing scent in like French Lavender and the teachers have reported better behaved children all around. Something to consider as an option so definitely contact me if you are from a school and something like this interests you.
