Do parents or students bring teachers gifts at your school? Is it bad that I'm looking forward to it this year a little bit? I can't afford to shop much for myself with getting presents for family and kids etc so I'm counting on those coffee cards and homemade cookies to tide me over.

I'm hoping for something!!! I have a kid that has accidents frequently and although he's not with just one para throughout his day it's usually on my watch!!! And it's #2 accidents!!! I like coffee cards!!! I rarely go out for coffee unless I have a gift card!!!

Oh I’m so looking forward to it! I looped with my caseload this year and I have a few that give super clutch gifts. I also have a couple that definitely didn’t ask their parents for a lick of help last year making or getting a present for me and those gifts I cherish the most - the letters, the prized rock they found on their favorite field trip, the smarties they know I love, the drawings of me and Josh Allen (big bill fan over here), and the bear hugs from the kids that tell me they wanted to buy me something but their family couldn’t afford it. I love it all!

Elementary staff get tons of stuff (candy, lotion, candles, cookies, etc etc). Parents are typically very generous. Little kids who love their teacher, principal, secretary, etc need to give a present lol- yay for us!

I usually get between 5-10 gifts of various types, usually candy/cookies, lotion, ornaments, plants, and gift cards ($5-20). My best one in ‘20-21 was from a grateful mom who gave me a book and a $20 gift card for Total Wine. They let me keep it!

Some parents and kids will make you happy. I guess it really depends on the kid and their parent. I mean, its always nice to get a holiday gift from a student and their family!

My absolute favorite gifts are the handmade cards with meaningful messages. Recently I have received more Amazon gift cards which are so useful.

On a team where we have 115 kids, I get lots of cute little gifts. Last year, a parent organized a collection from all the parents. With the money they raised each teacher got 5 50 dollar gift card to restaurants in the area. Nicest gift I ever got.

Do t get that at my school so don’t get hopes up

If it is given in consideration of a grade or any favor it will not be legal. However, with small things without anything or favor in return, then it is discretionary depending on the situation.

I have one student who makes me Christmas ornaments every year I have him (small school so I see him pretty much every other year). I have them on my tree. Cute little wood working things. Mine last year was a wood Christmas bulb that said HO^3. They get my science and math bent so well!

Two weeks ago, I arranged my first happy hour in hopes of lifting the team’s spirit up and for everyone to meet and greet (our client is pretty rigorous and I’m newbie). Everyone accepted the meeting. And no one showed up without telling me.

Does this happen a lot?

Am I the only one noticing how hard it is to get substitute teachers in Massachusetts? Pre-COVID it was a fight for hours. Now I’m one of only three in my district and all the schools are trying to get me in. I just passed my MTELs and they’re wondering if I can wait to look for a teaching position. What is going on?

I think teaching is the only job you
have to work, before you get to work,
so you have work to do at work. Then
because I had no time at work to do
work, I have to work after work to
catch up on the work I didn't do while
at work.
Do you agree?
