What Do Teachers REALLY Want?

what do teachers really want

Pinterest has cute ideas, but what do teachers really want?

As the end of the year quickly approaches, many of us are thinking about teacher appreciation gifts! Pinterest is full of all kinds of adorable little wreaths, or namesakes, or decorative flower pots. Imagine if every child in class brought in a crayon wreath? Though many of these are thoughtful, they are not useful. So I asked my friend, who happens to be a kindergarten teacher, what do you like receiving as a teacher appreciation gift. Her answer was simple: Items that I can use in the classroom! She was talking about school supplies or things they run out of regularly. She also mentioned that many teachers have a fundraiser open for items like iPads, or a field trip. So instead of spending that $20 on something like the crayon wreath, donate it to their fundraiser! I like to just do the school supplies with a small gift card in there for a local coffee shop, or even an Amazon gift card! If you want to go the school supply route, check out some of these deals…
