051. Last Minute Teacher Gift Ideas
It always seems that this time of the year flies by! Before you know it, it is the end of the year and you still have gifts to buy before your kids go on break. If you are listening to this and you are a teacher then you know the amazing array of gifts we can receive each year.

Consider what you are able and willing to give to your child’s teacher or teachers in your building.
