"The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called 'truth'."

Our teachers have always taken care of us in many ways all through our studying years. Right from tying our shoe laces to inspiring us to be what we are. They have always been around us throughout our childhood and watched us grow. So let's thank our teachers for all the love and support they have given through this journey.
Try a creative twist on the conventional cookies to show your teacher just how much you love her. Bake a batch of fortune cookies. Instead of putting 'fortunes' inside the cookies, ask your classmates to write out small messages for your teacher, and put those in the cookies. She'll be thrilled and will look forward to every cookie that she eats.
To make gifting easy, pick something simple, yet personal. It could simply be her favorite condiment. You can just ask her. Whatever it is; a jam, a sauce, a butter, track down a specialty maker and personalize a jar of it just for her. For this, all you have to do is stick a pretty name tag and write a message on it saying how much you value her.
So, as a sign of appreciation for the wonderful person that your teacher is, make a huge poster for her. On this poster, have every student write the word 'thank you' in various languages. She'll be touched by the gesture for sure.
Buy all the items and make sure you gift-wrap them perfectly. Use the same style and paper for wrapping to maintain a sense of uniformity. Now, simply put all the gifts in a huge basket and stick a note on the handle, telling her that you love her.
Realizing the importance of the role of a teacher in a student's life is something that usually happens much later in life. But don't let that happen with you. Understand, value, respect and cherish your teacher today, and you'll have a successful tomorrow.
