The # 1 .........(X-mas gift for a teacher)

** Not your ordinary endless list - just what's number 1. Simply THE BEST.

                                       Movie Tickets

This one comes from my own playbook and what I've just adored over the years. Teachers work hard and usually don't get out to the movies often. A nice pair of tickets really will get them out of the house and enjoying themselves immensely. They don't cost a fortune and really show you care! There isn't a teacher I've met who doesn't love film. It takes us away from our cares and worries and recharges.

Get wrapping up those tickets and say thanks to a teacher!

PS. While on the subject of movies - see our huge discussion on the BEST movie about Teaching.

I agree, Cristina!

Is anyone going to go see Avatar?

You guys - you have to be good at giving hints to students. Like - "What's are the best holiday movies students?" -- "oh yeah, I'd go but I don't have any money..."

Ha ha ha! Now THAT is the best advice I ever heard, David :))
@ Ellen...What is Avatar? *a movie, I presume...?
