Small potted plants

2020/2021 will go down as one of the toughest years on record for teachers. The shifting landscape of COVID-19 protocols meant teaching through masks and shields, badgering kids to wash their hands, sanitize and distance – all amid the ambient fear of getting seriously sick.

In short, make sure your teacher gets a meaningful gift and card this year.
