By around 3pm today there will be 8 school days left of the school year here.
I am not hiding the fact that I am counting down the days.
June is a hectic month with year end activities and report writing, and keeping the exhausted students engaged after 10 months of routines and hard work.
Teachers often receive gifts such as world’s best teacher mugs as tokens of thanks for all they’ve done. While these are greatly appreciated, little gestures stand out and are memorable. Especially when so much is happening during this month, the littlest thing can make a huge difference on an otherwise stressful day.
From a teacher to you, here are three ways you can put a spark in your teacher’s day and leave a lasting impression:
Mornings are busy. I always want to get an americano on my way to school but am too focused on getting there so I can prep. You can help. Purchase a tumbler, such as this one from Starbucks, wash it and surprise your teacher by stopping in 30min or so before school with a hot cup of specialty coffee or tea. Bonus, they can use the tumbler each morning afterwards.
Every gal loves getting flowers delivered to her work, and it doesn’t have to be from her beau. Brighten up her classroom (and morning!) with a beautiful bunch of flowers, such as these peonies in a blue antique mason jar. Need something for a male teacher? Deliver a succulent arrangement or terrarium instead.
It may or may not surprise you that most teachers work through a good chunk of their lunch break. Help your child’s teacher have a little more of a glamorous lunch by surprising them with take out, delivered to their classroom right at the lunch bell.
