DD is finishing foundation tomorrow and I have helped her make and ice (and cover in pink sugary tat) some biscuits. They taste pretty good but look suitably home made by little hands. About a dozen each for the teacher and two TAs. Also got DD to make 3 thank you cards.
I hope they don't think we are cheap but these are really from DD's heart as she has loved foundation. I don't like DD's teacher so haven't written a note myself and I'm relieved the year has ended. Hoping for a more understanding teacher next year.
I am the daughter of a primary teacher and end of year/Christmas was always amazing!
I'm a secondary teacher and not a form tutor so you don't tend to get anything, especially not at my school. I think it is good as some of the threads on here make me feel embarrassed, I would hate to think of people worrying about what I might like as a gift.
That said, one of my year tens bought me a mars bar the other week to thank me for my help. Just the thought that he had gone to a shop and actually thought (he had asked what my fave chocolate bar was) made me well up! Think he thought I was a right weirdo...
I have!....once and I didn't mind at all it was nice to show my appreciation (I say my because Ds doesn't do gifts everyone should know what he thinks ), I have yet to meet another teacher who teaches my Ds rather than sit him at the back of the room or in an empty room. Oh well maybe next year!
