Valentine’s Day Is All About Love

For your kids’ teachers. Skip the usuals (they already get plenty) and use this occasion to thank them for  how hard they work and how much of their time (unpaid) they give to our children. Give them time back: a gift certificate for an afternoon of house cleaning [maybe recruit a few other parents to share the costs]. Offer to come in every Friday afternoon for a month, to help straighten the room at the end of the school day. Or put together a package of extra school supplies for the classroom (you know the teacher often buys them out of her own pocket, right?). Visit a couple of thrift shops and pick up an armful of children’s books for the reading corner.
