I am so glad that I don’t have to worry about getting small Christmas presents for all of the teachers that taught my baby boy and baby girl any more. During their elementary years at the same school, the gift giving presented me with yearly challenges; finding something of nice quality within a reasonable price range and something appropriately personal to each teacher, I went through this for six years. I never really minded, it wasn’t easy, but all of the teachers deserved a token of thanks for all of their hard work and dedication.
Nowadays, Sybil and I get Christmas presents from our “students” at our weekly osteoporosis weight class. Today we each received a beautifully decorated gingerbread cookie man. I also received my annual Christmas spiced bread made by the lovely lady that I bring to weight class each week, she also included a present for Jack; she is dog crazy. Next week Sybil and I will be getting each a gift from the Town’s Council on Aging as a thank you for teaching the class. It’s fun to be teacher during the holidays, presents and everything.
