hart Posted April 27, 2004 Report Share Posted April 27, 2004 I will have been taking class from my teacher for one year, come June, and I would like to get him a gift. It would be my preference to go in on a group gift, but I don't see this happening because many of the students just haven't been real consistent. I wouldn't feel right asking them to participate. Is it appropriate for an individual student to get a teacher a gift and personal card? What kind of gift do you think would be appropriate? I feel some ambivalence about this. I really want him to know how much I have appreciated his class and ballet, but I have always felt pretty ackward around him. I am not sure what it is about ballet, but I seem to morph into an insecure, ackward 13 year-old when I step into class even though I am a fairly competent, 27 year-old professional outside of class. I sometimes wonder if he respects me as a person because of my insecurity, and I am afraid that giving him a card and gift expressing my appreciation for his class might come across the wrong way. Any advise would be appreciated. Quote Link to comment
