Best Gift for Teachers Is Appreciation of Students

DEAR ABBY: Give the lasting gift of books. For teachers who don't have their own classroom (i.e. P.E. teachers), a book can be donated to the entire school and placed in the school library. Our budgets never allow us to buy all the books our students need. -- THIRD-GRADE TEACHER IN DENVER
