You know, BESIDES the obvious reasons like:
& Spring Break.
And of course,
BESIDES making a difference in lives of middle schoolers & teaching them to love math.....
Let's call this reason #14 why I love being a teacher:
The Christmas Gift Stash:
Check out all the stuff I got from my students this year.
Lots of homemade goodies, a few candles, a couple ornaments, several boxes of See's Candy,
PLUS over $100 in Starbucks cards! Score!
When in doubt, ALWAYS, ALWAYS get your child's teacher a Starbucks (or Target) Gift Card.
Best. Gift. Ever!
Well, actually.... the best gift in my opinion....2 weeks off of school!
Happy Christmas Vacation!
