Whether you’re a homeschool teacher, a private school teacher, a public school teacher, or any other type of teacher, you’ve come to the right place for some amazing Teacher Appreciation Week gifts.

Now I’m not talking about the ubiquitous apple, the annual teacher mug, or flowers borrowed from a neighbor’s garden on the walk to school.

I’m talking about an ever growing collection of resource gifts that are made with teachers like you in mind.
