The first-two years were exciting as i taught lower secondary level.
I got a lot of presents frm my students..
Mugs,,pens-red colour,,frame,,shawl,,cards,,key chain...
Now i'm teaching upper secondary level,,the responds are diferent..
Not just the respond,,the feeling as well..
No excitement as the years before..
Is it a sign of ages?
,,since my daughters have grown up, i celebrate it in my own way.
I encourage my kids to appreciate their teachers..
This year,,as what i did in the previous year,,i asked Pearl and Emerald to list down their teachers'names. It would be easier for me to buy the presents. We have decided to buy red pens and paper clips. I tied both pen n clip with pink ribbon. They were happy yesterday as they went to school with not empty handed.
For my little Kaisah,,this is her first year, giving some presents to her teachers..well,she just 3 years old,yet i want her to appreciate her teachers at the nursery. Since her teachers are not using red pen,,i could not find the best *cheapest* presents :P
I tried to find the aprons at the giant yesterday wit Pearl n Emerald but i couldnt find one..after we mingled around for half an hour,,i decided to buy a small mug. It costs less than rm2.00.. i bought 10 mugs and a packet of roka chocolate for the kids at the nursery..
This morning,,i sent her to school. I told her that they were going to celebrate teacher's day at the kindergarten..she smiled..i didnt know if she understood but she nodded her head when i showed the bag that she should bring along today..
Hopefully the teachers are going to love it..it is just a small token frm us..i really appreciate them coz thy take my responsibility when i am not around..
