I am a paraeducator and I work with high school students like you mentioned above and this brought tears to my eyes!

Many of you mentioned you quit giving after grade school or middle school age. I would like to encourage you to give all the way thru school. The teachers put up with so much stuff and I think it's important to show appreciation for what they do at all ages. It can be something as simple as a large cookie!
I gave gifts all year long to the teacher's whose rooms I was in with my students. For the guys it was a Snickers, homemade cinnamon roll, and/or On the Go flavored packets for bottled water (I found out easily what their fav's were) and they were shocked the first time that someone would give them something and so appreciative. For the gals it was altered $1 candle jars like this http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...00&ppuser=1952
altered toilet paper tubes with their favorite candy like this http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...00&ppuser=1952
and at Easter (http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...00&ppuser=1952)

You don't have to do something for every occasion, but the teacher's are so appreciative of little things. I rec'd cookies, candies and pictures with personal notes and treasured each one of them.
