Whether you are looking for an idea for an end-of-year gift for your child's teacher or for something specific for America's "Teacher Appreciation Day" or "Teacher Appreciation Week" - this is the place!
"A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops."
Teacher Appreciation Week will next be 6th to 10th May 2024 in the US, and Teacher Appreciation Day will be Tuesday 7th May. You'll find lots of ideas on this page for Teacher Appreciation Day and Week, and of course they are also great for end of year "thank yous".
In the UK, Teachers' Day is always 5th October.
For many formative years, teachers are one of the most important adults in a child's life - and yet for much of the time we take them for granted.
Traditionally we remember to show our appreciation for our child's teacher either during "Teacher Appreciation Week" (in the US) or at the end of the school year. But there is nothing to stop you letting your teachers know how much you appreciate them at any time of the year!
A quick "thank you" note or email takes a moment to write and send but the pleasure it gives is enormous. And you will find many other teacher appreciation ideas below.
Print, cut and make these teacher rosettes and medals - a perfect little present for Teacher Appreciation!
