Teachers goodbye and gratitude

Teachers goodbye and gratitude

It's Monday again, which means it's time to write about my Magic Moment the kid's Amazing Achievements, and my Reasons to be cheerful. Well, this week is a little bit different, because they hadn't happened yet.

There were many discussions on the merits of teachers end-of-year presents, with many voices calling to relinquish this unnecessary expenditure.
