Wow! Wish I worked in your schools!
As a teacher my most favorite appreciation was the day each child brought in a flower for us. The PTA provided the vases and had extra flowers for kids who forgot. It was just lovely to have a huge bouquet of flowers on my desk. Some were flower store flower, some from the grocery store, some from gardens. Didn't matter - it was beautiful!!! The bouquets were so big I'd bring some home to brighten my apartment!
It's too bad that all the people who are smart enough to run the country are busy teaching school.
