An A+ Teacher Gift

Saturday, December 18th, 2010

What your child’s teacher would like you to know: He or she has more than enough “#1 Teacher” ornaments, apple doo-dads, plates of brownies and things with kids’ hand prints.

All those things are appreciated, of course. because the thought does count. But in tough economic times, what many teachers want (well, maybe in addition to a gift certificate for a massage) is more educational resources for their classrooms. So many teachers spend so much of their own money these days on things for the classroom to help our kids learn.

Happily, makes it easy to give your child’s teacher a gift that will be really appreciated. You can order a holiday gift card, and print it on your home computer. (No waiting for anything to be shipped! No trips to the mall!) Give the card to your child’s teacher and he or she can redeem it to fund educational resources for the classroom. has been kind enough to provide a gift card for one lucky Parent Talk Today reader, and I’ve decided to do a drawing (using a random number generator after numbering the names) from the names of people who have commented on our posts in the past month. I so appreciate your support of the blog and this parent community!

And the winner of the drawing is… Ellen Cajka! Thanks, Ellen, for your long-time support of Parent Talk Today. I hope your child’s teacher enjoys the gift!
