All I Want For Christmas...

Today my students showered me with gifts! I received this tiny tree covered with more than thirty gift cards to Starbucks, Target, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Babies R Us, The Body Shop, Springdale Country, Blockbuster, Barnes & Noble, Albertsons, Kabuki, The Cheesecake Factory, Petco, Circuit City, Borders Books & Music, and four movie passes! This is one of the best gifts any class has ever coordinated for me. In addition to that, they all chipped in to purchase a DVD player for the classroom!

I'm a lucky teacher!

    How wonderful. They clearly understand the meaning of it's better to give than to receive...I don't even think my gifts were that good when I got married. ;)

    Wow, you raked it in! They really must like you a lot! Well, of course they do. OK, confess if you eat the baked goodies your students give you. :)

    Oh man, you are lucky! I got so much chocolate it would take me a year to eat it all! Not to mention I would be a hundred pounds heavier if I did!

    It just goes to show how much they appreciate you and I have to say it beats all those individual gifts that you will NEVER use. How thoughtful
