  1. Two great gifts I received as a teacher: One thoughtful mom went to a paint-your-own pottery store & bought a large platter. She brought in paint markers & had all the kids sign it, then took it back to be fired. Great keepsake! Another mom got a small photo album & placed a picture of each child, along with a hand-written note from each one. I still treasure that 10 years later. Teachers don’t always remember every face years later, but I do for that class!
