A handwritten thank you card will go such a long way! More than a rando gift in my opinion.

Agreed. I did this when I left a firm and my former boss really appreciated a hand written note. We still keep in contact years later.

I guess my point is a handwritten, genuine card is actually a pretty rare gift these days. People always default to random trinkets (here’s a pen!) or worse, a gift card.

Question because I’m trying to do the same: how did you get their address lol? Did you just ask them straight up

Nope the secretary and I asked not to mention

I worked with them in person, so just dropped it on their desk. Granted now that’s likely not a possibility. Yeah, ask them or HR for their address.

I feel like there is an easier way to do this on line learning. Same grade teachers at the same school should be one big group. For example: One teacher has the discussion or lecture and does the presentation to all classrooms. One teacher mans the computer to answer questions that come in and handles any tech issues. Another teacher grades assignment and takes role and handles the admin part. Wouldn’t this be easier? Teachers could rotate or just stay in one role.
