Re-Post: Stuff Teachers Like

Sorry friends, no confessions today. (Although, you should know that Sam somehow managed to open and eat an entire carton of blackberries in the grocery cart yesterday; I casually browsed the store like an idiot while my son sat absolutely covered in berries.  Awesome.)  Anyway...

Instead, in the spirit of school being almost out for break, I am re-posting this oldie but goodie from 2010 (with a few minor changes) to aid in your shopping for teacher gifts this year.  Hope you enjoy!

Stuff Teachers Like
 #1. Embroidered and emblazoned sweaters and vest for EVERY occasion

#2. Apples (Especially of the "this has been in the bottom of my book bag for six days" variety)

#3. Smiley Face Stickers

#4. Motivational Posters
#5. Red Pens

#6. Rubber stamps with super corny slogans

#7. Rolling crates/suitcases/etc.
#8. Denim Jumpers

#9. "#1 Teacher" Goodies
#10. Cut-out letters and ANYTHING bulletin board worthy
Teachers, what did I forget??
Clarification: The above items are STEREOTYPES and actually NOT desirable for most modern-day teachers.  (Except for maybe #1, I always a feel a little "under dressed" around the holidays.)

If you really want to know...
  1. I get super giddy about gift-certificates (Starbucks, Barnes & Noble, etc.)
  2. I desperately could use things for my classroom --- mechanical pencils, colored paper, cute post-its, etc.  (My husband swears we don't "break even" on my expenses until about May.)
  3. Plants and flowers are WONDERFUL
  4. And, honestly, the best gift you could give me would be a simple THANK YOU - in email or letter form.  We really get a lot of negatives and very few positives from parents. 
Finally, a friendly reminder... Don't forget the high school teachers!  We love your kids too! :)

At my school, I have to supply my own ink and paper. Of course, as you can guess, I pretty much have to buy everything for my classroom. I had to purchase my own LCD projector this year, actually. Needless to say, these classroom supplies were a true blessing. I got so much paper that I still have some this year!
