ds first grade teacher announced to ds classroom that tomorrow is her birthday and she insinuated she wanted the kids to bring a present. I never had a teacher say this when I was a child, this is just greedy IMO.Christmas, Easter, last day of school, teacher appreciation day, valentines day, etc., is not enough of a chance to get gifts? smh.

I Would have him make a card for her.  As a class parent, I made a teacher a cake, but that was from the class

Nope. Ds told me today when he came home from school exactly what she said.

The only reason I ever knew it was a teachers birthday were a couple times one would bring in cupcakes for the class.

I doubt it. She probably either joked or your son said that because he really wants to get her a present.

So how did you know she insinuated she wanted a gift? Your 6 year old told you?

What exactly did she say? I also have a first grader and while I don't totally dismiss what you're saying, I also know that kids can misunderstand and misconstrude things.
