I make dishcloths for my son's public school teachers. He had the same German teacher for 3 years and asked me to make her a set in the colors of the German flag, his last year with her. It was the least I could do. She was his best teacher in all of his high school years. She was really seemed touched.

Public school teachers make more out-of-pocket purchases than most people will ever know. I give my children's teachers classroom supplies for Christmas.

I worked in a public school for 23 years. I do understand "pld" s comment. Not all students, nor their parents, can afford to give gifts to teachers at Christmas. However, making gifts is less expensive and more thoughtful than a purchased present. We don't expect gifts for Christmas; they are a bonus. A homemade present from the heart means the most!

I don't understand the point of the other comment. What a waste of time.

I went to an elementary school that served an orphanage. We were asked not to give our teachers gifts as our orphan classmates could not join in. I thought that was very considerate. (If I had gotten gifts as a city planner, I would have been fired.) A nice thank you is much appreciated by anyone who works for the public.
