Ahhhh, how sweet! Just think of how many drawings a veteran teacher would collect over all those years. The surprise ending was great.
Excellent character development here. I loved your teacher...and your fireman.

Loved your MC's--teacher and fireman. What a warm ending that her precious things weren't what I expected them to be until the ending.

VEry sweet story and well-written! I really liked the line "I always insist." It made me laugh! I think it must come from being a former elementary school teacher, but I was thinking "dollar store" when you said "presents." Even still, the homemade present line was a nice touch!

What a sweet story, and I just loved Miss Myrtle! :) (My first grade teacher was an elderly lady named Myrtle, and I could just see her in this role!) Good job!
