Being a piano teacher for over 15 years, I have received many lovely gifts from students and some creative ones, too. Have you discovered the same thing? I keep all my treasures in a special box. One favorite treat of mine, is receiving a Starbucks Gift Certificates. How I love coffee. I do remember buying and making presents for all of my children's very-deserving teachers at the end of the year.
