Treats for teachers
It's that time of year again when school is back in session!! Having taught school at three different schools, I know how to treat our teachers!!! I always bring a gift to the teachers on the first day of school. It may be a copy of my cookbook, a homemade baked item, or a DVD movie & popcorn. Throughout the year I bring special treats like their favorite drink or supper in a sack (entree, salad, bread, and dessert for their dinner that night) or a good lunch! Happy Mommy (www.mommytalkandmore.blogspot.com) bought precious monogrammed items for her teacher's lunch!
My friend, B, is always so thoughtful & creative! This year she took cute baskets filled with Carolina goodies. One of the best gifts was a roll of quarters for the drink machine!! B is always so creative and thoughtful. On Valentine's Day, she paints the lids of baby food jars pink & red & fills the jars with red, pink, & white MMs. So SWEET!
I also like to send a survey to the teachers asking them their favorite drink, favorite lunch time treat, do they drink coffee, etc. This allows me to tailor my gifts to things that they love!
