A gift to remember Lori and Michael

Michael Daniel Sipos- 1985

During my 35 years as a teacher and as an administrator, I had the pleasure of knowing thousands of children. Kids are incredibly precious and require special care – the kind of care that is available at the Montreal Children’s Hospital.

The best teacher gift of all…

card

My name is Shari, and I am a grade 3 teacher. Although I've been teaching for many years, I never fail to be touched at how many of my students and their families make the effort to think of me over the Holidays with small gifts and tokens of appreciation. I have an amazing store of memories of little faces beaming up at me as they hand me a special something, to let me know that I’m valued. I've received so many thoughtful, interesting gifts, but last year I received something that really stood out for me. To me, a gift …
