If you give a teacher a.... [giveaway!!!]

It's getting to be that time of year.  You know what I'm talking about.  That time of year where teachers are absolutely swamped.  Desks piled high with papers.  Assessments coming out your ears. Grades to enter.  End of the year fun to be planned.  And energy running low.  Let's face it.  The end of the year is exhausting.  You might find yourself feeling a little drained and a little less than appreciated.  But rest assured, teachers, you ARE appreciated!  Those very kids that are driving you bonkers right now, will come back next year just to give you a hug and see your smiling face. Their parents will SUPER appreciate you a few weeks into summer break when they realize how much energy their child has. 

Well, the bloggers over at iTeach Kinder KNOW how hard you work and we wanted to do a little something special so we're throwing a super awesome giveaway to show you that you ARE appreciated! 

You can enter to win a giftcard from Target, Amazon, Starbucks, or TPT!  We got to thinking about all the awesome things you could buy with those giftcards and we want to hear from you!  In true Laura Numeroff fashion, we want to know If you give a teacher a giftcard...what will she get?! Hope you don't mind if I share my ideas!
