Teacher Thank You Notes with gifts

Here are some more teacher thank you notes!

But first, check out these great ideas for homemade-style gifts.  They are creative, inexpensive, and thoughtful. Then see the sample wording below and tailor to fit your needs. Don’t worry about sending similar cards to several teachers. They won’t get together and compare notes.

Teacher Thank You Gifts

Don’t limit yourself to just teacher thank you notes; a candy bar (or other treat) is worth a thousand words.  Aren’t these adorable?  Some are marked “volunteer gifts” but they still apply to teachers.

Even if your teacher doesn’t have a sweet tooth, she can use these as class treats or just take them home to share with her family.

Teachers can always use more school supplies. Write “You’re a Sharpie” or some other play on the word!

Teacher Thank You Notes

Here are some suggestions for what to write along with those cute gifts!

From Student to Teacher

Dear Mr. Frank,

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your class this year. I’m sure it’s not easy to teach a bunch of crazy kids like us but you managed to keep us all interested and we even had fun. I wish all my teachers were like you. Thanks a lot!



Dear Mrs. Kinder,

Thank you for teaching a great class this year. I learned a lot and know you helped prepare me for next year. Thanks for always being patient and in a good mood. I always looked forward to class.

Best wishes for a great summer!


Dear Mrs. Wiggert,

I hope you know how much I’ll miss you next year! Your class was great and I learned a ton. You have a way of making dry subjects really interesting. I only hope some of my college teachers can be half as good as you.

Thank you!!



Thank You to School and Office Administrators

Dear Mrs. Taylor,

What would we do without you? Who else has the patience to deal with miscellaneous people passing in and out of their workspace all day and hundreds of random requests? We are very lucky to have you in our school office. We hope you know how much we appreciate your hard work! Best wishes from us all.


Thank You Teacher: From Teacher to Student for the Gift

Dear [Student],

Thank you very much for the scarf. I love the colors and have already worn it and received compliments!

Hope that your family had a relaxing and peaceful holiday season. Sincerely,


Dear [Student],

Thank you very much for the gift card! I can’t wait to go shopping. It’s one of my favorite things to do. Have a great summer. Keep writing those fantastic stories. I look forward to reading one in the fall! Thanks again.


Thank You Teacher: Help with Special Needs

Dear Helena,

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate everything you’ve done to help Ellie improve her auditory processing. She’s gone from having her Kindergarten and first-grade teachers comment on her lack of focus in class to being a confident second-grader whose teacher hasn’t seen her lose focus once. It’s truly a tribute to both her and your efforts– she definitely couldn’t have done it without you.

You’ve helped build the foundation for improved academic achievement, focus and social interactions. The impact of your help is so significant. It will help her for the rest of her life. I truly can’t thank you enough and will be forever grateful.

I’m sorry that our sessions are coming to end because we’ll definitely miss seeing you. I wish you well in your new endeavors teaching second and third grade and hope that we’ll keep in touch.

My sincerest thanks,


Thank You Teacher for Work with Difficult Child

Dear Mr. Singer,

We just wanted to thank you for your patience this year. We know Jason isn’t an easy child to manage and recognize the time you’ve spent working with him. It would be easier for you to label him a troublemaker and walk away but instead you deal with issues as they arise directly and fairly, and we appreciate that.

We’re thankful that there are teachers like you in our system. Jason will thank you one day himself, we are sure of it.

Best wishes.


Thank You Teacher Note for Writing Letter of Recommendation

Dear Mrs. Smith,

I can’t thank you enough for the letters of recommendation you wrote. It’s clear you put a lot of time and effort into them and hope you know how much I appreciate it. I hope I can do the same for someone else someday.

I will keep you posted on any responses I get.

Thanks again!
