End of The Year Gifts

It's the end of the school year and often that means its time to give a gift to some of your coworkers. I am leaving my school to start a new one! I am looking forward to the adventure but I will miss the people I have worked with the past five years. I wanted to get them something unique and other than my typical go to, the gift card. After a lot of thought I came up with some great gift options for them and ideas for you... plus you can buy them on Amazon, on the couch, in your jammies.

For the Fashionista:

I like to consider myself a fashionista. The perfect teacher gift for a fashionista would be something trendy. Alex and Ani makes an apple bracelet perfect for the trendy teacher. I just added it to my collection!

I think it is a sweet gift to add to or to start a collection. I think any teacher would appreciate it fashionista or not!

For the Bookworm:

I love a good book and I also love to improve my teaching over the summer. For the teacher that feels the same way I recommend any book by Ron Clark  but my favorite is End of Molasses Classes!

This book is full of 101 ways to transform your teaching. It is inspiring and fun. I recommend it as a gift and for yourself. 

For the Sweet Tooth:

I am not a baker but I love a great treat. I have perfected the perfect cookie. This gift can be given to multiple teachers and on a budget. They will be asking you for the recipe! Pair it with the cute labels and make them for your whole team!
