Over the years, I have received many unique and thoughtful gifts from students and families. The kindness and generosity have always been greatly appreciated each year.
But each year, I spend approximately $1000 on my classroom, purchasing new books, materials for color printing, classroom décor, school supplies, materials for special projects, rewards and more. I spend the money because I love teaching and want the BEST classroom. I want a classroom that students and I BOTH love being in! After all, it’s our home away from home! :) I hope my efforts to create a cozy and inviting place for learning is evident!
This year, IF you are thinking of purchasing a gift for me, please consider one of the following ideas that are linked below.
Please understand that this is in no way a request or expectation of gifts! I am only sharing these as ideas that you may use if you’d like. Your kindness and generosity with classroom donations and support this year have been the BEST!
