For my daughter's primary teacher we did something a little different. You can see what we did for her support teacher here.
I found this pencil cup idea on Family Fun.com

I used a small plastic flower pot instead of an aluminum can. This made it a little trickier to attach the photos to it. We used her class picture and I copied it onto regular paper then we used a circle punch to cut out each child's picture. We had to enlarge the class picture by about 50 % so that the photos would be the right size for our circle cutter. She mounted them on blue and yellow circles slightly larger than the photos and then attached them to the flower pot with scrapbook adhesive. She made a little sign for the gift message out of card stock and we attached that too.
I covered the whole pot with clear contact paper.
We added all different writing instruments around the outside of the pot and then she made her signature paper flowers for the center.
We tied each one to a dry erase marker and put them in a plastic cup inside the pot that you can't see.
We also added a Barnes and Noble gift card and hand written thank you note.
