10 Ways to Thank a Teacher

  1. Have your child write a thank you letter and write one yourself. Be descriptive!
  2. Write a letter to the principal and superintendent explaining why this teacher is fabulous.
  3. Write a letter to the editor for your local paper. Thank the school and the teacher and explain why you appreciate their work.
  4. Volunteer! Most teachers are short on time. Volunteer to come in and help organize, make copies, or clean.
  5. Buy a plant for the classroom. Drop off a box of chocolates or a bag of beautiful apples as a thank you gift.
  6. Bring lunch to the classroom. If possible, give them warning and ask for their favorite restaurant and meal first.
  7. Give classroom supplies or a gift card to a teacher store or office supplies store.
  8. Tell everyone you know that this is a wonderful teacher and explain why. Send your praise in an email and copy the teacher.
  9. Organize a larger classroom thank you effort. Have every parent and child write a letter and present them together. Or, go in together for a gift card, a day at the spa, or a gift certificate to a nice restaurant. Write a letter to the principal and have every parent and child sign it.
  10. Last, but not least, try to regularly look the teacher in the eye and simply say, “Thank you for what you do.”
