As a high school teacher, I never expect to get any gifts from my students. Especially working in a low income area, you really don’t expect anything. So when you do get a gift it is very special.

Friday was our last day before our two week break. I actually was fairly productive with my students. I gave quizzes in all of my classes and was able to correct them. I didn’t get any whining about the quizzes because the result was that they had no homework.

When I got to my last class, one of my students gave me a card and another gave me a tin of cookies and another package. I didn’t open the package until I got home. It was a book – one from an Oprah book club selection. I also opened the cookie tin to see what was inside. It was so nice to get this little gift.  The best gifts seem to be the ones that are unexpected.

    What a lovely gift. The green wreath looks like a miniature version of one my student brought for a Christmas party. Made with frosted flakes?

    I was thinking that it was corn flakes, but now that you mention it, it was probably frosted flakes. I just know that it was yummy!
