align your present well – Liberation

A short guide for parents who would like to give their child’s teacher a year-end gift.

This is the same unchanging tradition as a fair or a children’s New Year’s performance: at the end of the school year, it is customary to present a small gift to your child’s teacher. . After all, if at the spring parental celebrations you were treated to a magnificent pasta necklace or an exquisitely designed pencil holder, then this is primarily thanks to her or him.
