With his permission, I share it below.

In years past, I have encouraged students to donate books to our classroom library or games for indoor recess.
I will confess here, too, that in my early years of teaching (albeit in a more affluent neighbourhood than the one in which I currently hang my professional hat), I also trained my students to bring only quality chocolate, i.e. Lindt, etc. :))))
There is also a story about the year I got a class set of theraband balls as a communal gift from parents... or the year my principal got a bottle of vaginal spray, and the (heavily ESL) student subsequently inquired whether Ms. Jarvis "like the perfume"!
If you have a favourite "Christmas teacher gift" story to share, why not leave a comment below?
