This year there is just one new teacher in my building. In the past I've given baskets with markers, post-it notes, etc. BUT the other day I was in the local Hallmark store and ran across this cute polka dot bag plus a note pad & post-it notes. I also decided to throw in a bag of misc. jelly-belly beans. I think a little 'welcome' gift is always a nice and considerate thought. When I saw the polka dots, I thought of my blogging friends who are creative and colorful!
