Thank You Notes for Teachers

A good teacher is invaluable. They inspire, educate and look after us or our children. So many famous and successful people can map their success back to a teacher who believed in them.

So expressing your gratitude to a teacher who has been important in you or your child’s life is a small way of saying thanks. And thank you notes for teachers need not be long or overly sentimental.

Just a quick few lines, or a simple card is enough. It’s the sort of thing we can all manage. So there’s no excuse! Use some of the examples below as inspiration to write your own thank you note, or copy them directly.
