Thank You Messages for Teachers

The difference between a really great teacher and one who does not teach well can have a lasting effect on students.  Some teachers truly care about their students and want to make sure they are learning.  Some teachers work diligently to make sure students understand the material at a deep level and become more interested in the subject matter.  Here are some examples of thank you messages for teachers to write in a card to your teacher or to your child's teacher who you are grateful for.

Thank You Messages from a Student to a Teacher

  • Thank you for teaching me a subject I thought I could never understand or be interested in.  Thank you for making learning fun.
  • Even though you were a strict teacher and held us to high standards, I know that I have learned more from your class than any other class I have had.  You pushed me to do my best, and I am better for it now.
  • I consider you not only the best teacher I have ever had, but also the best mentor I have ever had.
  • I learned a lot in your class because you took the extra time to explain things clearly.  You gave me the extra help I needed.  Thank you for giving me your time.
  • You have and will continue to be a great influence on me.  Thank you for the great work you do and the huge impact you make in young people’s lives as a teacher.
  • Mr./Mrs. _______, The most important things you ever taught me weren't the lessons about the class material, but the lessons about life that you taught.   You have been a great mentor and role model for me.
  • If all teachers were like you, there would be “no child left behind.”
  • If I could nominate you for teacher of the year, I would. You have had to do so many special things to help me learn the material this semester/year.
  • Mr./Mrs. ____________.  Your class was the only class that I didn't dread having to come to each day.  Thank you for being a bright spot and something to look forward to in the school day.
  • I was going through a rough time and I wasn't sure I would make it, but you showed me that I am important and you helped me get through the tough time.  Thank you for being supportive when I needed support.
  • You are not just a teacher.  You are also a mentor and a friend.  Thanks for all you do for me.
  • Most other teachers don’t look out for their teachers the way you do.  Thank you for really caring about your students and knowing when there is something wrong.  You are more than just a teacher.
  • Teachers are probably one of the most underrated professionals out there, and I want to say thanks.   I understand how difficult it must be to educate a bunch of students all at the same time.  Then you take work home and grade papers at home, just so you can give your students good feedback.  Thank you for all you do as a teacher.
  • You are probably the third most influential person in my life just behind my parents because  you taught me to ask good questions, never give up, and never quit learning.  You instilled a sense of scholarship in me and showed me how important my education is.
  • The best thing about having you as a teacher is that I'll benefit from what I've learned the rest of my life. You've given me knowledge and skills for life.
  • I know that teachers like you make sacrifices for your students. You're one of the good ones!
  • You've taught me so much more than the subject that you teach. Thanks for being a mentor for life.
  • Gifted teachers like you are a gift to their students.
  • You work tirelessly to inspire your students. It's working because you work so hard. You're an amazing teacher!

Thank You Messages from a Parent to a Teacher

  • You have a special way of working with our son that helps him learn and be interested in school. It's easy to see that you enjoy being a teacher.
  • Thank God for teachers like you! This year could be going a lot differently if it weren't for your extra help for our son.
  • We appreciate all the skills it takes to be a teacher. You are organized, caring, and enthusiastic in what you do.
  • You deserve much more than a thank you card. I appreciate the effort that it takes to teach our daughter.
  • We know our son is in good hands while he's at school because of having teachers like you.
  • You have great influence on (name of child). He is always talking about the fun and interesting things you do at school. You've made him thirsty to learn.
  • This year has gone so much better than last year, and I think it's because of you being such a great teacher. You've sparked an interest in learning that wasn't there last year, and it's getting easier to motivate (name of child) to do work you assign.
  • We've come a long way with (name of child) because of your patience, understanding, and flexibility. We appreciate the way you deal with challenges in the classroom and how you challenge your students to do their best.

Sample Thank You Note for a Teacher

To get a sense of how to write a thank you note for a teacher, have a look at the example below:

Dear Mrs. Windsor,

I can't believe the school year is over. Your endless positivity made it a joy to come to class every day. Who can say that? Because of you, I know I can conquer any difficulty that comes my way. We both know you helped me push through those complex math problems.

You're my "once in a lifetime" teacher that will stay with me forever. You taught me that I can never go wrong with a generous spirit. I hope you have a spectacular summer and I hope to see you around next year!

Handwritten Note

A handwritten note from a parent or student is a lovely gesture. If money is tight, there's absolutely nothing wrong with a well-worded card. In fact, many teachers appreciate a handwritten note even more than a monetary gift!

Include some genuine sentiments like the ones mentioned above. Or, you can open or close your note with a memorable quote that summarizes what your teacher did for you. Many teachers keep these cards for years to come. They'll be lovely tokens when they look back on their life and career as a teacher.

You can also consider theseExamples of Words of Appreciation.

Gifts for a Teacher

If you want to give your teacher a gift, there are many different ways to go about it. Did you learn anything about their hobbies or interests throughout the school year?

Do they love to read? Do they have pizza night every Friday night at home? Are your teacher's nails always done? Does your teacher always wear a fabulous tie or scarf?

Typically, gift-giving ends once you graduate from elementary school. By the time you enter middle school and high school, you have so many different teachers for each subject, no student is expected to buy everyone a present.

Perhaps you could offer a small token for your homeroom teacher or favorite science teacher who really taught you a lot. But, once the days of sitting in one classroom for the majority of the day are over, a simple note will suffice if you really felt a special bond.

Generic, Useful Gifts

Generic gifts can include things for the classroom. Coffee mugs are cute and can also be useful for holding pens, pencils, and other things. Does your teacher have a morning cup of tea or coffee each day? Perhaps you could wrap up an assortment of teas.

Notepads are very useful too, as teachers write a lot of notes. You could include sticky note pads as well.

It's best to steer clear from wine or any alcohol, even at the higher education levels. You just never know someone's preference and, in rare cases, it can be frowned upon.

Gift Baskets and Plants

Gift baskets and potted plants are always appreciated. Gift baskets can be personalized and include things the teacher likes or supplies for the classroom.

A bouquet of flowers is a safe bet. If it's the holiday season, you can't go wrong with a little evergreen or poinsettia.

Perhaps an easy-to-maintain plant will fit the bill, too, if that's something your teacher seems to enjoy.

Gift Cards

Gift cards are also a useful expression of gratitude. They provide an array of options and are certain to be used. You can personalize these if you know your teacher's favorite stores or stick with fan-favorites like Starbucks, Target or Amazon.

You can also cover all your bases with a MasterCard or Visa gift card. Generally, the $25 to $30 range is plenty.

A Thoughtful Gesture

A teacher's job isn't done when that bell rings at the end of the day. They go home to think about the next day's lesson, they review papers, and they tailor lesson plans to get everyone excited about the day.

It's a thoughtful gesture to thank them for all their hard work. As we continue through life, we're going to remember at least one of our favorite teachers. Be sure to let them know that before they dismiss you into the next chapter. If, perhaps, you're attempting to thank a language teacher, it might be fun to say thank you in a few different languages.
