I've spent the last 4 years working with students with severe medical issues in very low-income settings. (Many of the students I had previously live in facilities with varying degrees of parent custody.) Every year I would get 1-2 notes wishing me a Happy Holiday season and one very thankful and generous family giving staff a heartfelt gift.
This year I'm in a pretty high socio-economic demographic, and holiday stuff is already rolling in!
Today I got a thermus and some treats from a student who I've never interacted with. I thought there was a little treat-tin in the bag - turns out it was a Amazon gift card
Anyone every get anything super cool/interesting during the holidays?
