A teacher receives the absolute sweetest gift from a very special student.
Christmas season is a time of year that people traditionally give gifts to special people in their lives. School students often give their teachers presents before the holiday break.

Since the selection of the gift often reflects the relationship between giver and receiver, some of the most valuable presents have little or no monetary value. As proven by the amazing gift a Washington teacher received from one of her less-fortunate students.
Today I received some chocolates, sweet handmade notes, some jewelry, but these Lucky Charm marshmallows stood out to me the most.
You see, 100% of my school is on free/reduced lunch. They also get free breakfast at school every day of the school week. This kiddo wanted to get my something so badly, but had nothing to give.
So rather than give me nothing, this student opened up her free breakfast cereal this morning, took the packaging of her spork, straw, and napkin, and finally took the time to take every marshmallow out of her cereal to put in a bag—for me.
I mean, what’s not to love about this? When someone takes the time and care to prepare a gift from the heart, the recipient is often profoundly touched, as Ms. Uretsky-Pratt was in this instance. Beautiful moments like these are the real reason for the season.
