  1. Thank you for compiling some very cute and accessible ideas for teacher gifts. Thank you also for not including anything about soap – as we get enough to scrub down our whole town every year. But I do have to object, respectfully, to your beach towel idea as I’m afraid it comes from the misguided notion that teachers get a two month vacation while the kids are home driving you nuts. In reality, most teachers spend their summers at various workshops – some mandatory, some not, some paid, most not – or reworking curriculum at home due to mandated changes from the school system, the town, the state, or the federal government.

    Some teachers, being among the underpaid civil servants everybody relies upon, get a summer job to defray the out of pocket expenses incurred while trying to do their jobs without enough materials. Those with time to do that are the lucky ones, those who do it in spite of the demands of their schools, are amazingly committed people who will always put the needs of the children in their classrooms ahead of their own needs because that’s what being a teacher is all about. Not test scores, not text books, not summer vacations – it’s about the children.

    I don’t mean to offend, only to educate. Thanks for listening.
