Gift Bag Ideas for Teacher Appreciation
posted by: Melissa | April 25, 2018, 08:14 PM   

Today, we’re turning things slightly on their head. Normally, we write entries that are helpful for classroom teachers and other educators, but today we’d like all of the classroom teachers to close their eyes for a moment and pretend that they didn’t see this blog! This entry is for the rest of you.

Teacher Appreciation Week is right around the corner and Dana Williams, a regional membership director for our national partner AAE, shared with us a list that she uses to prepare. What Dana does is go to the store, buy a bunch of candy and other treats, put labels on them and then put together gift baggies for teachers. We thought the idea was too cute not to share. If you’re interested in making gift bags for the teachers in your life, here’s a list of potential labels to get you going!

Lifesavers: “Thanks. You are a real LIFESAVER!”

Pop Rocks, Rock Candy, or Rock Star soft drink: “You ROCK!”

M&M’s: “Thanks for being a sweet and well-rounded teacher.” (secretary, custodian, crossing guard)
