Teacher Gifts

Megan: Good educators can set the path for your child’s future; they inspire, empower and guide our children alongside parents and caregivers, and I personally, feel like they deserve an genuine thank you for what they do. The thanks does not need to be expensive, it just needs to be heartfelt. Teaching is exhausting and rewarding in equal measure and by the end of the school year most teachers barely crawl to the finish line, then they promptly get sick, recover and then spend much of their holidays planning for the following year.
