T he Unusual Teacher Appreciation Gift

Many years ago, I received one of my most treasured Teacher Appreciation gifts from a student. It was an unusual gift, but one that I still have. That particular school year, I received many lovely gifts from my students: a mug from Starbucks, a gift card from a local bookstore, a small potted plant. I appreciated each gift and the hand-made cards and sentiments that went with them.

And, then…there was that unusual gift from Mikey*.
