This was given a grade, just like any other poetry assignment. The poem was then delivered to the teacher.This idea works especially well in certain circumstances. For example, if a teacher recently suffered through breast cancer, then donating a sizable sum to the American Cancer Society in the name of all the teachers of the school would be a wonderful way to honor them. Alternatively, the teachers could vote concerning which charity they&#39;d like the donation to go to.Having a lunch catered with non-cafeteria food can be quite a treat.
