Personalized Teacher Gift, Teacher Survival Kit, Teacher Care Package, Teacher Appreciation Gift May 2018. Gift from Student, Card Holder
I have been an educator for twenty-three years. This thoughtful keepsake, filled with 20 tokens, trinkets, treasures, and words of wisdom unique to the teaching profession, is small enough to store in a desk, to take home for the summer, or to keep on top of a desk for students to enjoy when they stop by to talk. This would also make a great gift for para-educators, principals, tutors, guidance counselors, and retiring teachers.
Personalized with the teacher's name and customized to your preference, this small but sturdy upcycled Altoid tin is meant to celebrate, delight, and inspire those who inspire others. You may choose from an upcycled Altoid tin or a square, rectangular, or heart-shaped paper mache box. Each container is embellished with fabric, paper, and other materials. See item photos for many samples!
You may also customize the inside lid with a quote, saying, or message from you or your child to the teacher. Or, we will include a variety of word magnets for the interior lid.
As shown, the box will contain the following items, as well as a "key" of inspirational quotes--one for each item. We have included just a few of the quotes that come on the key below:
Signing Hand "I Love You". "Knowledge is love, and light, and vision." ~Helen Keller
Door. "As a teacher, you open the door for students, but they must enter by themselves." ~Chinese Proverb
Wizard's Hat charm
Peace Sign. "Education breeds confidence. Confidence breeds hope. Hope breeds peace." ~Confucius
Boy and Girl Figures
Compass. "A Teacher has two jobs. Fill young minds with knowledge, yes. But more important, give those minds a compass so that knowledge doesn't go to waste." ~From Mr. Holland's Opus
Heart. It takes a huge heart to shape little minds! (me. :)).

By request, I am happy to do overnight shipping, with the buyer paying shipping fees above and beyond the regular shipping costs per item. Most of my listings have a "shipping upgrade" option at checkout; if you don't find this, just let me know through Etsy conversation.
