If you're thinking all teacher stuff think practical.

Not a big gift, but there is a book titled, You Have to go to School Your the Teacher. It is full of practical advice they don't tell you in college.

Oh, those are really good ideas. Maybe I'll get a storage tub or a brief case and fill it with gifts she'll need. I think she's OK with clothes because she worked at a bank while she was going to school, so she had to dress business casual. I'm making one of these for my son's teacher: http://zakkalife.blogspot.com/2007/10/knit-pencil-scarf.html

If I have enough yarn left over, I could make another one for her. I know it probably isn't the most fashionable thing in the world, but it's cute and I know classrooms can get cold.

I looked that title up on Amazon, and it sounds like a really useful book. Thanks for the suggestion!
