I don't remember having Teacher Appreciation week as I was coming up, but perhaps I have just blocked it. Or I don't remember because it was mainly my Mother doing the work. ;)
One of the things I am SO SO grateful for is that we found a wonderful preschool for my daughter. Every single staff member there is great. There hasn't been a situation yet that I don't feel they handled appropriately and well. Miss D enjoys being there and likes her teachers and friends.
Picking gifts for teachers is difficult. Will they like the handmade item? Probably, but how many decorated flowerpots, mugs, aprons, bags, etc can one person really handle after several years in the position? Also, the administrators always have the children put together a book for each teacher where they write stuff about them and/or draw a picture, etc.
This year I got her teachers movie tickets, which I'm hoping they will like. And this morning we dropped off a bunch of bagels and cream cheese for the admin staff and other teachers to enjoy. Hopefully that will be enough!
