It depends on the teachers.
In the past, my daughter has had female teachers (lower Primary) so I find a nice coffee cup with a few sticks of coffee blend (like the Nescafe cappuccino sticks) and some biscuits wrapped up in cellophane go down a treat.
The bonus here is that you can make 4-6 depending on the type of coffee packets you buy and a multi pack of cups.

DD has an older male teacher this year, so I'm a little stuck on what to do myself.

We made our own Jam this year and will give a jar to our teachers.

Last year tin of biscuits (very nice tin from Target).

and one of these  http://blog.christyscreations.com/tea-wallet-tutorial/

i've made the produce bags (made 10 in a day), and the other 2 once cut only take an hour or so

I got a production line of these http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2008/07/classi...l/#.UER_JqNhiSN going last year.  I chose some striped canvas for the male teacher and a nicer pattern for the females.  I still see them around school and the male teacher asked where he could buy more!  I might have to be boring and do the same again this year!
