Even though expressing appreciation for teachers is welcomed all year round, spring has some extra special dates to remember. First comes Homeschool Teacher Appreciation Day. Then comes Teacher Appreciation Week the first full week of May with Teacher Appreciation Day on the Tuesday of Teacher Appreciation Week.

What to Write in a Teacher Thank You Card

thank you wishes for teachers

A teacher is the one who teaches you all the important things in life. From the basic learning of life to the career, we all need a teacher at different phases of our life. Sometimes a teacher can be a little strict in schools and colleges which some people do not like but a teacher always forgives and tells you the difference between right and wrong. Well, teachings of a good teacher always help you grow in life. Some people also retaliate that they never give importance to the teachings of their teacher when they did not get success in life and then you understand that how well your teacher advised you and you feel like thanking them for their work.


In this article, we will share with you all the thank you wish that you can share with your teachers. We hope you guys will like these wishes and thank your teachers for their efforts.

20 Best Examples for a Thank You Note to Teacher

thank you wishes for teachers

In life, we get influenced by many people. Of these ones, only few were by virtue of physical meetings. Whether we liked them or not, physical meetings with our teachers were a constant and came with some degree of influence. However, not all of them influenced us enough to be recognized. There’s always that one teacher who went the extra mile.

There’s that one who gave their best and over the years, you realize they were your best. When we do appreciate how important such a teacher was, being able to say thank you should not be a problem. At least, with these quotes, you get to do it properly.

Thank You Teacher Quotes.

#1: It must have been a great task convincing yourself to show up to teach again and again. Thank you for not giving in or giving up. Thank you for giving yourself.

#2: If all the world could have your dedication, there would be more progress and more interest in education. Thank you for showing resilience in it all.

#3: Thank you for the energy you put into work that found its way into our brains somehow, some way. It was sometimes easy but when it was hard, you rarely allowed it show.

#4: And we know how you never really had free weekends as you were either reviewing our progress or planning how to improve it or both. Thank you for sacrificing.

#5: Did we ever get around to saying thank you for your patience with us? We could be a lot of trouble and naughtiness but thankfully, you stayed cool.

#6: Thank you for showing us we could be like you and even better if we put our hearts to it.

#7: For being amazing in your approach, accommodating to us all and accurate in your teachings, we say a big thank you.

#8: Thank you for not complaining about the chalk stains on your clothes, the ink stains on your hands and the tear stains on your face when it seemed nothing was coming out of your hard work. Thank you for counting us worth the pain.

Short Thank You Messages For Teacher.

#1: Not every teacher deserves to be called one because that title is reserved for great ones like you.

#2: Thank you for imparting knowledge the best you could.

#3: Saying thank you cannot cover for all you have imputed in us but I’ll say it nonetheless.

#4: I really hope you have reasons to smile and I hope my little thank you note is another good reason.

#5: You deserve a warm bath, massages for your back and legs and a warm cup of tea but as I am not close enough to give you these, I can only wish my thank you message warms you up.

#6: Hearts of gratitude are scattered all over in honour of you. Thank you for being you; a great teacher.

#7: As it stands, you deserve a standing and clapping ovation. Let’s just start with a “thank you” ovation first though.

#8: If there are decorations for every time a teacher pushed beyond a student’s initial inertia and forged ahead to make of them a great person, you’ll be highly decorated.

Thank You Notes To Teacher From Student.

#1: I am not sure you remember me amongst the sea of students you have taught. I remember you though and I cannot forget to say thank you.

#2: Thank you for the little nudges, the extra pushing and the constant encouragement in those years as your student.

#3: I definitely had little or no idea the importance of having you teach me. Now I do and I am saying thank you.

#4: If all the times I annoyed you could be converted to thank you, they still will not be enough.

#5: I am living proof that all your efforts were not in vain. Thank you for the hours at work and even off work.

#6: I do not know how many times your wrists ached from all the writing you did. Or how often your voice went hoarse. But I do know that right now, I want to say thank you because through the pain and hoarseness, you steadfastly taught me.

#7: Why you kept at it after we first met or after you first graded me, I do not know. Why you singled me out for the extra lessons, I have no idea. You saw potential where I saw none and you did not stop till you had fanned it into flames. There’s just thank you to say and more thank you.

#8: Through your smiles and stern looks and subtle remarks to do better, I have sailed through life. When I am tempted to give up, I remember your words, urging me to give it another try. Thank you for making me a stronger person.

Thank You Teacher Messages From Parent.

#4: Somehow, you assumed the role of parent and teacher for the students. We say thank you for doing both really well. Our child is the better for it.

#5: We know how easy it could be for our child to have forgotten to mention this. But, we wish to show our gratitude today to you for all that your teaching stands for.

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.
