    My TA is so great. She always knows where that one elusive piece of paper is, where the stapler got put, makes sure my coffee cup is not left around with mold growing in it, supports me when my patience is running out, contributes great ideas to the classroom, connects with every child, makes us laugh, and reads my mind.

    I missed this whole week due to the flu and she led the class without missing a beat.

    What oh what can I give her for Christmas? Her family is going through tough times financially the last few years, but relatives got her a ticket to go home for Christmas. My thought is to give her a VISA card to spend on her visit.(But she is very proud and I don't want to insult her. She rarely lets me even treat her to a Starbucks.) Any thoughts?

    Get the gift card. Once she has it, she will use it. Just make her take it!
