I got a present!
I know this is a bit pathetic, and that some of you get lots and lots of gifts from teachers, staff and students, but....
Apart from a present from my immediate boss at Christmas, I never get anything from staff or SMT as well as no acknowledgement of my contribution to the school - either school.
But...just now the head of Year 4 brought me a lovely hand made card and some chocs from all of Year 4. She was very complimentary about my work here (have been here since Christmas) and I feel quite tearful. Such a small thing, but it make all the difference to me.
I shall go home happy.....

I got some choccies from the HOD, but not holding my breath for much else from the school. Finance dept kind of got me air-con installed yesterday so I'm happy with that

Oh my goodness thats lovely. I've just been winding the office staff up because they've all been given a small gift from a child.
I said stuff the "Thank you teacher" cards....where are the "Thank you Technician" or "Thank you Network Manager"?....Pah!

I got given a "No, I will not fix your computer" t-shirt by a TA a few weeks ago and a big bar of dairy milk from another TA last week. Funny how the people with the least money are the most forthcoming with presents!

They haven't fully adjusted to teacher mentality yet TA's are always wonderful, bubbly people, bit carefree and a good laugh, when they aren't TA's any more and amalgamate into the machine, they slowly slip off the scale year after year.

That's lovely witch. I got a bottle of rather nice sparkling wine from our new SENCO this year for bailing her out on a regular basis when she first joined.

One of my schools gave me a selection box of the Terry's Chocolate Orange range, me thinks it was left over from Christmas.
My school today have given me a card with a fantastic personal message and a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2007 by Banrock Station. 3rd bottle since I started working here.
I don't have the heart to tell them I don't like wine.
But it will be drunk

We had a few pressies........ laptops to rebuild for them over the holiday

We've been offered to come eat their buffets, which has gone down well
Not too fussed about pressies, could do without the guilt of not getting them anything!
Maybe a glass of wine at 3pm will do the trick

Know the feeling Witch - for the first time ever I got a pressie from the ICT Subject leader!!!! She said she couldn't do her job without me - which was very, very nice. Made me feel good anyway as I have got her out of a few fixes. Her card said thank you for my "gentle guidance" - mm not so sure about that one
