    Thank you so much for your replies... I will definately think about "dropping hints" and putting that little message on my website.

    The problem I have is that parents still are always trying to spend money on personal gifts to me... I actually had a parent ask me one time what my best teacher friend down the hall might like for an end of the year gift from the entire class. I thought it was so nice that she asked, and so (because my friend is just like me) I said that she would love a Barnes and Nobles gift card. The parent actually said, "Nah." I asked her why not, and she said because that's not actually FOR her, that's for her class.

    I wish people would see that teachers are different like that!! I WANT things for my class more than for myself! Aagh!
