Write Your Teacher a Heartfelt Thank-You Note

Good teachers help guide us to develop our potentials and embrace our strengths. Express your gratitude for your teacher with a heartfelt thank-you note. And maybe give them an inexpensive yet thoughtful gift to show your appreciation.

How to write a thank-you note to a teacher:

From an elementary student:

  • I am lucky to have the best teacher in this world. Wherever I may go in my life, I will always remember that I had an excellent guide in the form of a teacher, You.
    • Thank you for your guidance, friendship, and even for your discipline. I learned that I am strongest when I recognize what yet is weak and how I might best develop those parts of my character. Thank you for taking the time to be my friend. (Maybe not from a five-year-old, unless the child is a precocious specimen successfully shaped by this remarkable teacher’s effective teaching method.)
    • Thank you for creating an environment of enthusiasm for learning, appreciation for growing, and room for making mistakes along the way. I am grateful to have you as a guide, leading by example.
    • Thank you for sharing your gift of teaching with us!
    • You are not only our teacher, you are our friend, authority and guide, all rolled into one person. We will always be grateful to you for your support and kindness.
    • I may not always say it, but I mean it whenever I say it. Thank You, Teacher, for all the extra efforts you make to help us grow, and the challenges you encourage us to face to help us become who we are.

Notes from Student to Teacher

Dear Mr. Thompson,
When I first saw you walk into our classroom, I saw the kind of person I was proud to call my teacher. Every day you came to school with a smile on your face and a kind word for all of your students. That means a lot. Your love of learning ignited our own curiosity and made learning much more fun! You taught us all to appreciate clarity of mind through proper writing form and how to pay attention to the bigger picture. You will never know how much your guidance has helped me, but I wanted you to know that you have made a big difference in my life.
My thanks always,

Words to Thank a Teacher From Parents: To a Coach or Sports Mentor /Teacher

Dear Coach Jackson,

We want to express our thanks for making our son, Tim Findley, feel a part of the volleyball team this year. If you recall, Tim transferred into the district in late October just after you had officially ended try-outs. You agreed to make an exception and let him try-out for the team the following week, and fortunately, you selected him for the starting line-up. That exception, in itself, could have created jealousies among other students.

We, as well as Tim, feared that might be the case. But as the season began, you planned some very important team-building, “bonding” experiences for the boys as you traveled to various tournaments to scout the opposition. Those trips especially gave the team members a chance to get to know Tim quickly one on one off the court. Those opportunities made the transition much easier for him in the new school.

And by the way, I might add that his grades have reflected a comfortable adjustment as well.

As you may have guessed, changing schools in the middle of the year is never a good situation for any student, but for an athlete, it can be disastrous. Such was not the case for Tim this year, thanks to you. We do appreciate your constant encouragement, your competent coaching, and your efforts to see that the college scouts take a look at your athletes. What more could parents ask?

To a Child’s Private Instructor / Tutor

Dear Michael,

Bruce has been taking swim lessons for three years, but it wasn’t until he enrolled in your class that he finally conquered his fear of water. I really appreciate your being so patient with him and working so hard to boost his confidence. The additional instruction you gave him after class really made a difference. Bruce is already looking forward to taking your Level 4 class next summer.



To Child’s Teacher

Dear Ms. Philly:

We so much appreciate the special attention you have given to Kelly while he has been hospitalized off and on throughout the year. As you know, such extended absences can play havoc with a child’s relationships with other students, and you have been particularly sensitive to making Kelly feel a part of the group when he was able to be in class.

Specifically, I want to thankyou for the several occasions when you gave the other children time to make cards and write notes to Kelly. Not only were you teaching your fourth-graders writing skills, you were teaching them to care about other people. That, I’m sure, is a direct reflection of your own personal commitment to your students.

And what a wonderful idea to record their class parties and special days to send home for Kelly. Although he sometimes watched through tears of disappointment that he could not be part of the festivities, those tapes kept him in touch with his friends during a very difficult time.

I’m sure teachers hear complaints from time to time, but I wanted you to know that we in our household and neighbourhood are certainly singing your praises. Thankyou so much for your dedication.

Looking for a Gift to Show your Teacher Some Appreciation?

An apple works, or paying attention in class also provides a teacher with a special tingly. Give your teacher something practical and thoughtful — a simple lined journal with a funny cover on the front will bring a smile to your fav teacher’s face. Write a special note on the inside cover, perhaps.

If you have a few teachers on your list, a more frugal option is to buy a stack of blank thank-you notes and write each teacher a personalized message. Also appreciated.

Sometimes we forget the impact that we have as teachers. Schools are busy places, and teachers are busy people, so it’s not surprising that sometimes we miss out on chances to stop and reflect upon the influence that we wield over the young people in our care. Often, it’s the little conversations, the easily-forgotten asides, the friendly smile or brief compliment that mean the most to young people – and while we might forget them by the time it comes to write the next report or plan the next lesson, those words can remain with a young person for a very long time, shaping their personality and their thoughts.

So, thank you to all the teachers out there. To show you how powerful you are, as individuals and as a profession, here are a collection of ‘Thank-You’ letters written by students thanking the teacher who, in his or her inimitable way, changed their lives for the better.

Dear Sir,

I hated you when I first met you. I hated the fact that you made me stand up straight. I hated the way you made me wear my uniform right. I hated the way you made me speak correctly. Most of all, I hated the way that you wouldn’t accept my work unless it was the best I could do. And the best always seemed more effort than I was willing to put in.

We had lots of arguments, at the start. I remember being kept in at lunch a lot. And despite my yelling and threats – even tears once or twice – I remember you never lost your temper. You were always patient with me. You always took the time to listen to me, whenever I wanted to be heard.

I look back upon that time as so important in the development of the person that I am today. You taught me discipline. You taught me dignity. Much more than English, which was what you were supposedly teaching me, you taught me that I could achieve more than what I or other people thought that I was capable of. I could be a success, instead of a clown.

For that lesson, I owe you so much.

Thank you.
A student (Year 11).

To my teacher:

If I had not had you as my teacher in Year 7, my life would be incredibly different. I’m not saying it would be bad – but you opened my eyes to what I could be, what I could do, in a way that I’ve never thought possible. You took a kid from Penrith and made him want to see the world and beyond.

I still remember one lesson where you told us about your hopes for your future when you were our age. I think you were meant to be talking about science, but it changed, and kind of became a life study. You told us about your regrets, and your successes, and for some reason, it all resonated with me, and I started to realize that anything really is possible.

You have changed my whole aspect on my learning, I wouldn't be where I am today without you. Your encouragement and persistence in my junior years has taught me that I am who I am, and to get to the top, it’s all down to me. I am capable, but it will take hard work and lots of dedication.

Thank you,
Nick (Graduated).

Dear Friend:

An Inspirer. An Empower. An Engager. These three characteristics are just a short sample of the many you demonstrate with all of your students, including me, every single day.

Too often we progress through the ‘ropes of life,’ and do not invest the time to express our gratitude and authentic value for the support you so eagerly share for our growth, as not only students, but also as global citizens of society.

You make me feel authentically supported when you say, “Please let me know how I can be helpful” and genuinely mean it. Also, the excitement you express to co-learn with me rather than teach me, makes me feel like a partner in my learning experience, when it is so easy to feel like ‘a sponge that can only absorb.’ I know you have so much to share, but I love how you also openly articulate how much I have to share as well and how much you learn by engaging with me!

As an educator, your title can ensure a role of heightening my knowledge in academics. However, you see me not as one of the many students you have, but instead you value me for my uniqueness and strengths. You promote an environment where I feel like I am able to not only share my contribution, but also know it is actually considered and appreciated.

Thank you for being genuine. Thank you for seeing me as a partner in learning and sharing. Thank you for being you. Thank you for being one of the few great teachers out there. May you inspire others to achieve the greatness you have.

With gratitude,
Clement Coulston (Graduated)


Thank you for your patience. Thank you for your time. Thank you for helping me with my homework. Thank you for setting me homework. Thank you for staying behind to help me, even when I know there are lots of other places you’d rather be. Thank you for keeping me company on camp when no one else was there. Thank you for not embarrassing me in front of my friends. Thank you for explaining things until I understand. Thank you for making me do my best. Thank you for being my teacher.

Teacher Thank You Notes

Writing a thank you note to preschool teacher for teacher appreciation week or at any other time requires some work. You must take great care to do this right because you want to give the teacher the best possible feeling in their soul when they receive this note. There are some tips below that will show you how to build the best note, how to make the teacher feel great, and how to help them know that you love them for what they do.

1. Thank You Note to Preschool Teacher from Student

The thank you note to preschool teacher from a student should be something that the parents write on the kid’s behalf. There comes an age when the kids can write a note to their teachers, and you must guide them in writing something that will make the teacher’s heart flutter. The first step in any note is a good greeting, and you want the kid to talk to the teacher the way they would normally talk to them. Some kids will say hi, and other kids will say hello. Certain kids want to start with Dear Teacher, and still more kids will want to simply use the teacher’s name. Ask your kid how they would normally address their teacher, and you can go from there.

A. What Is In The Letter?

You want kids to tell their teachers that they appreciate them, that they learned something useful, and that they remember something special from the school year. There are a few sentences below that you could use with your kids so that they write the best letter for the teacher.

“Thank you for teaching me music this year. I know how all my favorite songs are written, and I am glad you showed me how the music notes work.”

“Thank you for taking care of me this year. I needed all that help with math, and I a glad you are the one who helped me.”

“Thank you for being my teacher this year. I will miss seeing you every day when I come to school.”

You can use a few sentences like this strung together to create a letter. The body of the letter will let the teacher know how the school year went in the eyes of the kid. The kid can tell you all the things they loved doing in school, and the teacher might learn a thing or two in the process.

B. How Do You Close The Letter?

You must close the letter in the way that you know your child would close it. You could have a more formal and proper child say sincerely, but other kids will say love. Let your kid tell you what they want to say to their teacher. They have a very good idea of how they want to talk to this person, and you must let your kids guide you.

“I hope I get to see you next year. Love, Caitlin.”
“I will miss you next year. Sincerely, Lucas.”
“I hope you have fun this summer! Thomas.”

Every closing that you use should be something that the teacher will expect. You know how your kid is most of the time, and you can use that information to help complete the letter in the best way possible. You must let your kids choose from a few phrases you like, or they could tell you what they want to say.

C. How To Deliver The Letter

You could deliver the letter in an envelope, or you might slide it into a card that comes with their gift. You should ask your child if they want to write the letter, or you could write it for them. They might also want to write the teacher’s name on the envelope or the outside of the letter. Make certain that the letter is delivered in a package that looks like it came from your kid. The teacher will have a smile on their face when they get a big pink envelope from the girlies girl or a letter on formal stationary from the boy who likes to wear a tie to school. The delivery of the letter is often the most important part because teachers feel so much joy before they ever read the letter.

2. Thank You Note to Preschool Teacher from Parents

Thank you notes from parents should be much more extensive when they are given for teacher appreciation week. You will be pretty happy with the letter if you sit down and think about all the little things that you appreciated about the teacher. You are welcome to write the letter in formal language, and you might choose to use the teacher’s first name. Teachers are called by their last name all day, and it would be better for you to talk to them like an adult.

“Dear Crystal”
“Dearest Sharon”

All these openings make your letter much nicer to read, and the body of the letter must be laid out so that you cover all the topics that are most important to the teacher. You want the teacher to know how you feel about them, and you want to write in the style that is best suited to your personality. They want to know you as an adult, and you could become their friend if you close the school year well.

A. What Do You Say?

You must let the teacher know how you really feel about them. You are both adults, and you can express extreme thanks and admiration in this letter. This is the time that you tell the teacher that you liked the way they dealt with your kid, or you could tell them that you liked the way you ran the class. This is the perfect time for you to share all the little things you learned from the teacher, and you can tell them that you know how much they love your kid.

B. Thank Them For Their Service

Teachers need to be thanked for their service just as much as people in the military. You should spend some time in the letter letting the teacher know that you appreciate all that they have sacrificed just to be at school. You must talk to them about the things that you want to help them with, and you could offer your assistance in the future. Some teachers always have the same parents helping them because those parents were willing to offer their services. You might be one of those people.

C. Close The Letter

You can close the letter any way that you want. Writing to another adult is much easier because you can tell them anything and they will understand. Let the teacher know that you appreciate them, or have great admiration for them. This part of the letter lets them know where you two stand.

3. Thank You Quotes For Preschool Teachers


Thank you quotes for teachers are a big part of the letter-writing process. You can find quotes online, and there are a couple listed here:

“The influence of a good teacher is never erased.”
“It takes a big heart to help shape little minds.”
“For your patience and caring, kind words and sharing, I want to say thank you.”

You must use quotes as much as you can to make the point that the teacher matters, and you could open the letter with one of these quotes. You might write the quote on the envelope, and you could use the quotes inside the letter to help the teacher remember how special they are. Teachers love inspirational quotes, and they will take those to heart when you have taken the time to write them into the letter.

4. How Do You Compose The Letter?

You have taken the time to complete a letter for the teacher, and it should be handwritten in most cases. You could write the letter in your favorite pen, or you could write the letter in a calligraphy style that you have practiced over many years. You are trying to give the teacher and experience that they will appreciate, and the handwriting for your letter makes all the difference.

The kids who write their own letter should be allowed to write in what medium they want. You might let your kid write in pencil, or you could allow them to write in crayon. You must let your kid ve as expressive as possible, and they will produce something that is good for the teacher. They will feel accomplished because they have been given this letter, and they will know that you have put so much work into it.

5. A Sample Letter

This is a sample letter from a child that could help you get some ideas for the letter. It could be much longer, but we want you to know how to begin.

Dear Teacher,

Thank you for teaching me this year. I really liked being your class, and I will miss you next year. Thank you for the treats on Fridays, for letting us go to recess, and for being so nice. Love, Andy.

A sample letter for parents is a little bit longer simply because there are more things to say. You could use this letter as a way to start your writing. Adults usually need more time to decide what to say, and you will have a lovely letter to give to the teacher when the school year ends.

Dear Cheryl,

Thank you for teaching Timmy this year. I am so glad that he had a nice teacher like you. I love the way you are so kind to the kids and call them friends. I hope that you have the most restful summer. You are a true asset to our schools, and you will be truly missed in our family. If you never need anything from me, please do not hesitate to ask. Sincerely, Linda.

6. Conclusion

The letter that you write for a teacher at the end of the year or during teacher appreciation week must be something that the teacher will treasure for years to come. Use the format above to get started, use quotes where you can, and help your child write their letter when the time is right. This is also a great way to build your child’s self esteem. They will feel good because they are doing good.
