How common is it to buy the teacher a end of the year gift?

I'm going to ask this more then once because my son's teacher is amazing and deserves a little something but don't want to be the only one who has ever done this

  • Hi,

    I am an elementary teacher and it is so nice when parents give an end of the year gift. It makes you feel like all your hard work was noticed and appreciated. I always loved when parents gave me a small visa gift card, dunkin donuts, bath and body works. Hope this helps!
