I thought I'd do a quick post for those who may be stuck for ideas for end-of-year teacher gifts. School doesn't end here til July, but in the States I was told that it's nearing the end of the year.
One gift I was advised by a former teacher to give was handcream in a neutral scent since teachers tend to wash their hands a lot. I thought that was a great idea, but also wanted to do something original along with that.
For the teaching assistant (this isn't really an exact translation of what he does, but the best equivalent function I could find) or ATSEM (Agent Spécialisé des écoles Maternelles) who is male I got a keyring with "Super ATSEM" and a Superman logo
And for her teacher, I got a pocket mirror with "Thank you, teacher, for helping me grow" (loosely translated) written in French.
I think I will add something more personal like a drawing done by my daughter and a mini cake decorated by her.
I'm hoping these are things that are useful to them, but who knows. I went ahead and got them now because I was afraid I would forget to order them if I waited.
You can find all kinds of things like around the web with varying price points. Perhaps an initial or name keyring or mirror would be more personal, but those are gifts they might get at other occasions so I chose these. :)
