I've got FOUR teachers to buy for, so I had to be a little bit conservative. I found $10 3-piece tea mugs (w/infusion cup and lid) that are dragons and pandas (one each) for the two main teachers that are not dd's main teacher. I also got them some cool teas, one of whcih each should find delicious, if they don't all make a hit lol!
There is one assistant teacher, who is not trained in Montessori but does have 4 of her own 5 kids in the school. She's wonderful, and I like her very much, but she is more of a gofer for the teachers (by necessity!) than a teacher. I got her a $10 gift cert. to a local bookstore near where she lives.
I found this
very cool 2007 almanac, which I think her main teacher will dig, and it's kind of expensive (tho cheaper on Amazon than our local bookstore lol!) so I think he'd never buy one for himself. I will add home made soups in a jar and call it DONE. End of the year gifts are generally a bit weightier, and I like to do the gc's then, so that they can get new stuff for the coming year, kind of thing.
