Anyone ever give or receive something like that?She's just the best and I want to let her know it in the best way.I have received gifts from students over the years. I remember almost all of them, and the students who felt strongly enough about the class to make the effort. By far the most memorable came from a boy who was in danger of failing my oceanography class after the first four weeks. I noticed one day that he not only liked to draw in class, but that he was very good at it. I talked to him about using his skill to produce some pictures for my bulletin boards. I started him out making larger copies of ocean instruments from texts. Then I suggested some ideas for original work that would blend what we were doing in class with what scientists were doing at sea. He ended up getting an "A" by the end of the semester. He came in the last day of school and presented me with a very nice drawing of seals hauled out on the rocks. It was something he had seen on our trip to the coast.The thing that made this special was that he was giving something he had created himself, and something that demonstrated clearly that my skills and his had found common ground. Find something of yourself to leave with your teacher. Both of you will remember it long into the future.
