Once upon a time, in a life far far away… I was a teacher. On paper, I still am… and maybe one day I’ll return to the classroom. But for now, I’m a teaching ex-pat-turned-Mommy-blogger!
Anyway, I think I’m well placed to tell you that teachers don’t want ornaments shaped like apples or paper weights with cheesy quotes about education. We like useful things: wine, gift cards for nearby coffee shops, and stationery. (I will confess that I have an award, shaped like an Oscar, with a plaque that reads “Best Teacher,” which a student brought me back from L.A…. and okay, I love it.)
Had I known about Lovable Labels when I was setting up my classroom, I’d have saved all of my books and binders from Sharpie… and the teacher I passed all my pedagogical goodies on to would not be toting around Teacher’s Guides with MS. GALLIMORE scrawled across them in giant letters.
